U.S. offering million-dollar rewards for intel on North Korean sanctions-busting

Project offering up to $5 million for information leading to "disruption" of DPRK's illicit networks

The U.S. government will now offer up to $5 million in rewards for information that might help lead to the disruption of North Korean sanctions-busting networks as part of a new project, the State Department confirmed to NK News this week.

The program, first reported earlier in the month by Radio Free Asia and first publicized at the beginning of the month, aims to counter everything from ship-to-ship transfers of sanctioned commodities, North Koreans working overseas to raise money for the state, WMD proliferation, and foreign businesses linked to those activities.
