NORTH Korea has is­sued a stand­ing or­der for the ex­e­cu­tion of for­mer South Korean pres­i­dent Park Ge­un­hye and a spy chief for a plot to as­sas­si­nate Kim Jong-un.

The Korean Cen­tral News Agency said Ms Park mas­ter­minded a scheme to ex­e­cute its “supreme lead­er­ship” in 2015 and it was im­pos­ing the “death penalty on traitor Park Geun-hye”.

Ms Park was ousted in March over a cor­rup­tion scan­dal and is in de­ten­tion while on trial.
