According to a new report, radio broadcasts from a South Korean nonprofit human rights organization appear to have been jammed by authorities in the North Korean regime.
Daily NK reported Thursday that “there have been signs that North Korean authorities have been jamming radio broadcast frequencies used by UMG since mid-December.” UMG is Unification Media Group, the consortium that owns Daily NK.
This was backed up by the director of the Northeast Asian Broadcasting Institute, who told Daily NK that there are “clear signs” of such interference. He even provided a video file showing extra noise which he believes came from the jamming attempts North Korean authorities.
The report speculated that the jamming may have been connected to the passage of an “anti-revolutionary thought” law in early December, as part of the Supreme People’s Assembly.
