오스트리아에서 20년간 김정일 일가의 호화생활용품 구매담당자로 일하다 잠적한뒤 지난 2006년 오스트리아주재 한국대사관으로 망명을 타진했다가 거부당했다고 주장한 김종률씨가 오늘 BBC 방송과 인터뷰를 했습니다

김씨는 유창한 독일어로 인터뷰에 응했고 BBC 방송은 그와의 인터뷰 내용 4분5초를 직접 들을 수 있도록 웹사이트에 올렸습니다  http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8563896.stm

김씨는 김일성사후 서방세계 잠적을 결심하고 1994년 10월 18일 슬로바키아 갱에 의해 자신이 살해당한 것으로 위장했다고 밝혔습니다 
 
국내언론들도 김씨의 전화번호를 입수, 전화통화를 한 것으로 보도되고 있습니다
전화통화량이 상당할 텐데, 이를 인터넷에 공개했으면 좋겠습니다 안타깝습니다

아래는 인터뷰 전문입니다

The man who bought gadgets for Kim Jong-il

Kim Jong-ryul, a former North Korean colonel, was Kim Jong-il's personal shopper for two decades. He has been living in Austria since defecting in 1994 after faking his own death, and a book about his experiences has just been published. He spoke to the BBC's Europe Today programme.

Kim Jong-ryul says he has no regrets about breaking his silence

In 1972, the great dictator decided that henceforth he wanted to drive a Mercedes-Benz Pullman - the biggest one.

So I was assigned to the task.

I knew German and had technical knowledge.

So that was my job for 20 years - providing the cars and all kinds of security gadgets for his bodyguards.

My main operational base in all these years was Vienna.

We could have gone to Germany or Switzerland but we thought Austrians as a nation were neutral and the people are friendly and helpful.

So we chose Vienna. I had a diplomatic passport for many years.

Pistols and furniture

In the mid 1970s North Korea went bankrupt, so sometimes for my purchases I had to bring in $300,000 or $500,000 in cash.

No problem. They never searched me.

We found that Austria was easy to handle. We could purchase embargoed goods here.

We labelled and packaged them and then shipped them from Vienna. That is how it worked.

FROM BBC WORLD SERVICE

Austrian businessmen are very good at that kind of thing.

North Korea always paid 20-30% extra and Austrian firms were quite interested in that.

We used this interest.

We bought all sorts of things - such as Geiger counters, fingerprint readers from America and encrypted telephones for the two dictators [Kim Jong-il and Kim Il-Sung] to talk to each other on.

Also, gold-plated pistols, hunting rifles and furniture and fittings for villas.

Faked death

One reason for my escape was that I knew the real situation in North Korea and could compare it to the freedom of the Western world.

It became clear to me that North Korean policy does not work. It is wrong, so I wanted to get away.

Hatred towards the two dictators was my motivation.

In order to escape, I set up my own death. It took a real "theatre play" to make everyone believe I was dead.

On 18 October 1994 I was "killed" by Slovak gangs. I think it worked and I went undetected until today.

If you get old you start thinking about death and so I thought, do I want to die like this or leave a legacy?

I decided I wanted my last cry of protest to be heard and then die. That is how the book came about.

Now I am known as a traitor, if they find me, they will kill me straight away.
