9 N.K. Defectors Repatriated
7 Sent to Labor Camp,

An Example of NK's "Humanitarian" Treatment of Defectors
In June of 2013, we reported on 9 orphans who made it all the way out of North Korea, across China, and into Laos before they were arrested and repatriated to the brutal regime they were trying to escape. (See "World Community Outraged by Orphans Returned to NK")
Now, news is starting to filter out about what happened to them. The Dong A Ilbo website in South Korea reports that of the nine young escapees, two were executed, and the other seven sent to the infamous Prison Camp 14.
We have written about this prison camp before. See the following articles for more information.
