UN Report Opens Eyes to Abuse in North Korea


February 18, 2014

This week the United Nations released a comprehensive report of human rights abuses inside North Korea, including evidence and first-hand testimony collected from hundreds of North Korean defectors.

In graphic detail the report characterizes a regime that draws comparisons with the terrible evils of the Nazis under Adolph Hitler.

Considered the most dangerous place to be a follower of Jesus, North Korea consistently tops the world's human rights watch lists as the most repressive and closed nation on earth. Reports of inhumane actions, particularly towards Christians, continue to trickle out of the country. But there is a group of exiles who have not only escaped the “Hermit Kingdom” but also desire to go back. You will meet four North Korean exiles training to take the gospel to their former homeland.

No improvement for North Korea's Christians
(though originally published Dec. 2012, this article has some very important details)

Border patrols have been taken over by North Korea's National Security Agency, which has put pressure on captured smugglers to disclose information about Christians helping defectors.

Open Doors reports that some arrested Christians were tortured and then released in order to betray their brothers and sisters or to serve as bait.

"It's so dangerous to help Christians who have been released by the government. Some have been tortured so severely they cannot walk anymore.

"Of the estimated 150,000 to 200,000 people living under horrific conditions in prisons, there are 50,000 to 70,000 Christians. Also, many North Koreans are chronically malnourished and unemployed.
