North Korea may have continued Namibian Air Force job in violation of sanctions
NK Pro analysis of newly revealed documents suggests North Korean involvement in several projects inside Namibia
Documents recently discovered at an abandoned North Korean construction firm show that North Koreans helped build new hangars at an air base in Namibia in 2017, in what appears to be a clear violation of United Nations sanctions.
The documents obtained by NK Pro show that on August 22, 2017, a third-party evaluator approved the completion of work by Mansudae Overseas Projects (MOP) on a hangar at Grootfontein Air Force Base, a facility that hosts combat aircraft. Satellite imagery reviewed by NK Pro shows rapid construction of a large structure, possibly a hangar, at Grootfontein in July that year.[/p
