Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea): Public executions: converging Testimonies
This report contains converging testimonies from a variety of unconnected witnesses indicating that public executions have been carried out in North Korea for many years, continuing into the 1990s. These testimonies lead Amnesty International to fear that the death penalty is much more frequently used than North Korean officials have admitted and that, despite officials denials, public executions may still take place.
