Jang Yong Son is a KOMID Representative in Iran and an official of the North Korean government;

A UN Panel of Experts report published in March 2021 claims that three Iranian individuals and seven North Korean officials were involved in a gold and cash smuggling operation based in the United Arab Emirates. Several of the North Korean officials were previously tied to Korea Mining Development Trading Corporation (KOMID), a DPRK state-owned enterprise sanctioned by the UN for proliferating weapons of mass destruction;

A 2019 UN report discussing the same operation alleges that Kim Yong Chol and Jang Jong Son, both DPRK diplomats designated as KOMID representatives, took more than 282 flights in 2015 and 2016, mostly via Emirates Airlines, between Tehran and Dubai airports. The report further describes the diplomats’ quick return flights to Tehran within hours of arriving in Dubai, which is a common practice of cash couriers;
