North Korea: Government replies to Amnesty International's report
The North Korean authorities on 14 October commented on an Amnesty International report entitled "North Korea: Summary of Amnesty International's concerns", published on 14 October 1993. They reject the information contained in the report as "either utterly groundless or far from the fact", but they confirm the use of public executions. They fail to address detailed information about prisoners of conscience and people in unacknowledged detention. In addition to giving details of a public execution, they also comment on the report that employees at two foreign trade organizations had been detained for spying, and on the detention of workers at North-Korean administered logging campss in Russia. Their response is appended.
