I published a new paper about the long lasting discussion about North Korea and its position in the international organised crime scene - as it seems to the outside analyst:
Criminal connections. State links to organised crime in North Korea, in: Jane's Intelligence Review, April 2014, Vol. 26, Issue 04, pp. 34-37.
The picture above shows Russian-made aircraft technical stuff on the Chong Chon Gang.
There are many aspects coming together, showing a dispersed society, looking for income and wealth. And it shows an influential network of younger North Koreans, trying to get more money, more power and more iPhones. In the near future I will publish a few more paper, going deeper into some special aspects of organised crime, the intelligence requirements in collecting data about it, processing it into information and helping to crack down organised crime networks.
