“People accused of political crimes are arrested and sentenced to prison camps without trials, while their families are often kept in the dark about their whereabouts. Up to 120,000 inmates were in the country’s four major political prisons in 2014 and were subjected to gruesome conditions, according to the United Nations report. Prisoners are starved, forced to work, tortured and raped. Reproductive rights are denied through forced abortions and infanticide. Some are executed — sometimes in public. Hundreds of thousands of political prisoners have died in the camps over the past 50 years, the United Nations report found.”
–from “Atrocities Under Kim Jong-un: Indoctrination, Prison Gulags, Executions,” The New York Times, June 11, 2018.

Fiber: Joe Mullins, the Flagler County Commission candidate, has rescheduled a meeting on fiber infrastructure in Flagler for 10 a.m. at the old Bunnell City Hall, 200 South Church Street.

That representative is not listed in Mullins’s latest announcement of the rescheduled meeting. Palm Coast City Council member Nick Klufas had been scheduled to appear at the original meeting. He will not appear on June 13 as he is traveling that day. On May 22 Mullins hosted a similar meeting, on opioids.
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office continues the phased evacuation of nearly 70 employees from its Operations Center in Bunnell to the Flagler County Courthouse and the sheriff’s old administration building on Justice Lane.
