North Korea prison camp survivor awaits U.N. report with hope, despair
By Ju-min Park and Sohee Kim SEOUL (Reuters) - After a year of investigation, the United Nations is set to release a detailed report on human rights violations in North Korea, but defectors from the country and experts are deeply skeptical it will have any effect on the regime in Pyongyang. The U.N. Commission of Inquiry on human rights in North Korea was set up last March to begin building a case for possible criminal prosecution. Michael Kirby, a former chief justice of Australia who chairs the independent inquiry, said after preliminary findings last year that inmates in North Korea's prison camps suffered "unspeakable atrocities", comparable with Nazi abuses uncovered after World War 2. North Korea itself labels any attack on its human rights record as a U.S.-led conspiracy.
