Detailed U.N. findings on human rights in North Korea
United Nations investigators say North Korea committed crimes against humanity, which should be referred to an international court or tribunal for prosecution. “These crimes against humanity entail extermination, murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape, forced abortions and other sexual violence, persecution on political, religious, racial and gender grounds, the forcible transfer of populations, the enforced disappearance of persons and the inhumane act of knowingly causing prolonged starvation,” says a 400-page report unveiled in Geneva by the U.N. Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in North Korea.
