People's Republic of China/Democratic People's Republic of Korea: Further information on forcible Return / Fear for Safety - Asylum-seekers from North Korea

, Index number: ASA 24/001/2000

More evidence has come to light that the Chinese Government has been contravening the principle of non-refoulement by forcibly returning scores of North Korean asylum-seekers to their country. Amnesty International is concerned that those forcibly returned are at risk of severe human rights violations, including prison terms, or even the death penalty. According to some reports, many are subject to torture and ill-treatment while in prison camps.
