The plight of inmates in North Korea’s huge network of Soviet-style gulags has been revealed in a report by human rights campaigners.
Those awful, awful Norks…
The human rights group spoke to a number of people, including former inmates from the political prison camp at Yodok, as well as guards in other camps, revealing what it said were horrific conditions.Thousands of people are believed to be held as ‘guilty-by-association’ or sent to the camps simply because one of their relatives has been detained. A significant proportion don’t even know what crimes they’re accused of.
How terrible. It’s just as well we’re civilised, isn’t it?
