Kim Jong-un's nephew was taken under guard

The nephew of the leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-un - Kim Han Sol, who lives in France, was taken under police protection. Security officials fear for his life after the execution of Jang Sung Taek, the second most powerful man in North Korea, who was his mentor.

Nineteen-year-old Kim Khan Sol is studying at the prestigious University of Le Havre. The young man is the son of Kim Jong Un's older brother, Kim Jong Nam, who was considered the successor of the former North Korean leader. However, after Kim Jong Nam fell into disgrace and was excluded from the number of successors, the family left North Korea and lived in Macau, China and Singapore. The disgraced uncle of the young DPRK leader Jang Sung-taek was actively involved in the upbringing of Kim Jong Nam when he was a child. Chan Song Thaek also influenced the upbringing of his nephew Kim Jong-un.

Kim Han Sol does not hide his negative attitude towards the current leader of the DPRK. He has repeatedly stated that his uncle is a dictator. He also advocated the unification of the Republic of Korea and the DPRK. “I always dreamed that someday I could return to the DPRK and change everything for the better, make people's lives easier,” Kim Han-seol said at the time.
