The mother had saved her two children from a fire that broke out at home, leaving pictures of North Korean leaders burning. If found guilty, the mother will face a prolonged prison sentence with hard labor.
As a result of the investigation, she could not take her two children to the hospital, nor obtain the necessary treatment for their burns, according to (RT).

North Korea is required to post in each home the personal photos of former leaders (Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il), and inspectors are dispatched to ensure they do so.
According to the laws, all images of the royal family must be treated with the same sanctification of the men themselves; in the sense that failure to care for the images properly is a serious crime.
