If you read to the end of the article you posted, you wouldn't have to wonder.

[i]"The authorities are handing down at least six months in a labor training camp to anybody who didn't participate in the organized gatherings during the mourning period, or who did participate but didn't cry and didn't seem genuine," The Daily NK said, citing a source in North Hamkyung province in North Korea.

The online paper -- which is based in South Korea and run by opponents of the North Korean government -- said that the source reported that those critical of the country's dynastic system were being sent to re-education camps or banished with their families to remote areas.[/i]
