U.N. Commission of Inquiry Finds North Korea in Violation of Human Rights
After an 11-month investigation, the United Nations Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights released a report on Monday that revealed gross alleged violations of human rights in North Korea. Damning testimonies from over 100 Korean refugees, including a mother who was beaten and forced to drown her newborn child, led to the commission's conclusion that North Korea has committed crimes against humanity. Pyongyang has refused any involvement in the investigation of North Korea Prison Camps and has condemned it a "charade." What impact the report will have has yet to be determined, as China is a staunch ally of North Korea and a member of the U.N. Security Council.
