This article reports on the evidence acquired by several non-governmental intelligence sources in Seoul, Korea that Pyongyang has been distributing badges carrying the portrait of Kim Jung-Chol, the third son of North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-Il. Kim Jung-Chol's portrait was produced by the National Mansudae Creation Center and began to be distributed during the celebrations of his father's birthday on Feb. 16, 2006. Government intelligence sources, however, denied there was any concrete evidence that Kim Jung-Chol is being officially anointed as the country's successor.
