The institution responsible for North Korea’s work in South Korea is called the “Government Building No.3” This is a memorandum attached to the fact that the department in charge of anti-South construction is located in the third building of the party. The following is an overview of Government Building No.3.
The Central Committee of the Workers Party of Korea has four departments that supervise South Korea operations. The Social and Cultural Department, the Operations Department, the Research Department, and the Unified Front Division The research department is located in the main building on Changgwang Street in central Pyongyang. The other three departments are located in the Government Building No.3 of the party.
The Ministry of Social and Cultural Affairs is an organization that captures South Korea, and its main business is sending spies and scouting.
The Research Department is a research organization that collects and processes South Korea and various overseas information.
The operations department is in charge of terrorism and the planning of spy operations. Kim Hyon-hui’s KAL bombing and terrorist attacks at Aung San Mausoleum are also scenarios drawn by the Foreign Intelligence Research Department (now the Operations Department specializing in terrorism has been separated from the Foreign Intelligence Research Department). There is a contact point for each road.
The Unified Front Division (abbreviated to the Battle Division) is a unit that is in charge of Japan and the United Front Division. He intends to utilize the Korean Union League organization in Japan in the event of an emergency. Recently, he has included Koreans in the United States, and has also been involved in the transfer to the Ministry of Social and Cultural Affairs. Of note is that the commander of war is behind a variety of North Korean social groups. There are thirteen divisions in the Ministry of War, and six divisions are led by the Homeland Peace Reunification Committee, the Central Committee for the Democratic Front of the Homeland, the Tendo Youth Party, the Christian League, and the Buddhist League.
Agents dispatched to Macau, Hong Kong, Japan, Germany, etc., cannot return for years after they have been dispatched. Therefore, their wives are forced to live like their later families. In order to rescue them, the South Korea Engineering Department invites them to the invitation office several times a year to give them souvenirs. Malicious executives take advantage of this opportunity to mess around with them. (Kan Myong-do, North Korea’s Top Secret)
Among the four departments of Government Building No.3, the Research Department, which is responsible for collecting and investigating overseas information, is also responsible for nuclear policy.
North Korea’s nuclear policy is set by the Deputy Director-General of the Government Building No.3 Research Division of the Central Committee of the Workers Party of Korea. The research department, located on Sogwang Street in downtown Pyongyang, is an organization that collects and analyzes information on overseas and South Korea. In 1992, the North American Division of the International Affairs Division was transferred to the Research Division. Originally, the North American Division belongs to the International Affairs Division, and is a separate organization with a different character from the Research Division. However, in an attempt to improve relations with the United States in response to the nuclear issue, the North American Division was separated from the International Division and merged with the Research Division. As a result, Kim Yong-sun, who was in charge of the International Department, is now also working as the Research Department. (Ibid.)
No.3 Government building is not only engaged in foreign intelligence operations but also seems to be raising funds.
Government Building No.3 is also North Korea’s largest foreign currency earning business, earning $ 8 million to $ 10 million annually. North Korea’s counterfeit printing plant is located in Yona-dong, Chung area, Pyongyang.
There are five buildings inside this barbed wire that is running electricity. It’s almost four or five floors brick. Among them is a four-storey red brick building where another guard stands. The number of people working is about 2,000.
The counterfeit banknote mill belongs to the Government Building No.3, and the inside of the 101 office, which is internally called the “101 office”, does not only print dollars. All the prints needed for espionage against South are printed here. For example, counterfeit passports, resident registration cards, driver’s licenses, leaflets for advertising in the South, and booklets on subject philosophy.
North Korea made counterfeit banknotes in the seventies, but they were only small for craft. Later, in the late 1980s, the company switched to mass production. The strong evidence is the Huangumsan Administration, set up in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The purpose of this department is to use the diplomatic network to replace North Korean dollars with American dollars. Founded in 1987, this department is responsible for international money laundering operations.
First print the dollar at the 101 office. North Korea’s technology for dollar printing is probably the best in the world. Special lint and invented in the United States to prevent counterfeit dollars
The watermarks are properly put in and made exactly like the real thing. The produced dollars are transported to the Huangumsan administration, where they are stored in diplomatic diplomatic sacs. To take advantage of the diplomat’s immunity. Approximately $ 100,000 is packed in a single sac. The diplomats carry this bag to Hong Kong, Macau, the Middle East, Africa, etc., and exchange them for real dollars through dark dollar dealers, or exchange them for German marks, etc. In addition, an account is opened at a local bank, and laundering is performed through the process of trading CDs (convertible bonds), securities, bonds, etc. many times.
After completing the work, diplomats pack real dollars into sacs and bring them back to Pyongyang.
In 1985, North Korea’s laundering technology has not yet been refined and the Huangumsan Administration has not been established. A special order has been issued by Pyongyang to a trade counselor at the North Korean embassy in Beijing, Cho Dae-yob. Launder $ 500,000 counterfeit note in Libya. He arrived there and visited a black market called a traditional market located in the center of Tripoli.
However, she was arrested by Libyan secret police (Mukarabat) while changing dollars. Gaddafi’s secret police were setting up a network of information in the market like a spider web. It included information that Orientals in one of the networks are changing large amounts of dollars. Zhao Oba, arrested for violating the Foreign Exchange Control Law, was thrown into prison. And the Libyan Foreign Ministry telegraphed Pyongyang.
“A Korean national named Zhao Daha is currently in jail for violating the Foreign Exchange Act. However, he strangely possesses a Korean government diplomat passport, apparently spoofing a diplomat. In any case, please confirm Mr. Cho’s identity. “
At the World Youth Student Festival, an executive at the Government Building No.3 have embezzled church and temple donations.
In July 1989, Kim Jong Il issued extraordinary instructions to the party. “The act of giving a donation or offering at a church or temple is evidence of a lack of loyalty to the party, so thoroughly investigate those who have embezzled the church’s donation.” It is a teaching given in the famous “Church Donation Case”. The incident occurred during the World Youth Student Festival held in June 1989.
In the north, the Chilgol Association and Ponce Church were built in line with the festival. It was to show the world that North Korea could have free religious activities.
The promotion of this project to create the image of “North Korea = freedom of religion” was led by Kanwangwang, the First Deputy Director of the United Front Unit 3 of the Government Building No.3, which is in charge of the South Business.
Kan has decided to mobilize organizations under the Unified Front Division to recruit followers. These organizations are a cover to hide the identity of the party. Examples include the Homeland Peace Reunification Committee, the Central Committee for the Homeland Reunification Front, the Social Democratic Party of Korea, the Tendo Youth Party, and the Buddhist League.
Kang borrowed dollars from the Daisho Bank, which reports directly to Labor Party Room 39, and gave the followers 100 dollars each. Believers follow the worship service and donate one hundred dollars at a time. It was calculated that people coming from abroad would also pay a minimum of one hundred dollars because they had a good face. The plan was successful. However, the total amount of donations used for the calculation is not right.
Investigations revealed that religious group leaders in the United Front were embezzling significant sums. An angry subordinate told the center of the party that an executive had monopolized. (Ibid.)
