Japan: Kim Jong-Un's Fishing Edict Behind Corpse-Filled 'Ghost Ships' Mystery
by Frances Martel 17 Dec 2015
When dozens of ships carrying decaying bodies began to wash ashore near Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan, theories abounded regarding who were on the ships, where they were coming from, and what led to their deaths.
Japanese officials are now saying they believe they have solved the mystery: the ghost ships belong to North Korean fishermen, urged by dictator Kim Jong-un to brave unreasonably dangerous weather for a bigger catch to bring home to the North Korean military.
While similarly-constructed ships - often boasting barely-visible Hangul Korean script and tattered cloths resembling North Korean flags - have been washing ashore in Japan since 2012; the accelerated rate at which they have surfaced in the past two months has baffled Japanese experts. In early December, Japanese officials noted they had discovered 34 such vessels, worn-down ships with deceased, and often decayed, bodies and very little else on board. The ships were found in extraordinarily poor condition, and the bodies were so decayed that forensics professionals could not determine cause of death or, in some cases, gender.
Officials eventually narrowed the origin of these ships down to two possibilities: fishermen lost in stormy seas or North Korean defectors looking to reach Japan. In the past, many of these ships have been found to have contained defectors, and some confirmed this theory by reaching Japan alive. This theory became more popular following a report from Japan's NHK Television earlier this month.
