So I was searching ats for any mention of this news, but found nothing.
Basically North Korea has stashed away around $4-5 billion in various banks accounts in
other people's names in Austria, China, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Russia, Singapore and Switzerland!
And an extra article, in the event that Chosun isn't your cup of tea (even though they divulge more information):
Considering their nuclear tests have been aided by Iran, it begs the question who else has been helping lil Kim?
Article for Iran assisting NK testing:
Chosun "Iran paid millions for ring-side seats to NK's test":
Another thing mentioned was this:
"Since high-ranking North Korean officials and state agencies have been banned from engaging in financial transactions overseas, Pyongyang is
apparently relying on the Russian mafia to launder money and operate secret slush funds."
Hmm, the Russian mafia? Well, isn't that just great! I guess NK adds some extra services.. They specialize in the drug trade, probably how they got so
much spare cash.

So fellow ATSers, what are your thoughts on this?
