Obscure new group offers $5M bounty for ‘critical info’ on North Korea

March of Liberty says it seeks to ‘emancipate’ North Koreans, but experts caution much about group remains unknown

An obscure new organization called March of Liberty has offered rewards up to $5 million for "critical information related to North Korea" to "emancipate" the country’s citizens, in a campaign that appears to imitate a U.S. State Department counterintelligence program.

But while an NK News investigation suggests the group has real cryptocurrency assets for paying out rewards, experts cautioned against taking the organization's intentions at face value, suggesting that March of Liberty could serve as a front for North Korean or other intelligence agencies.
