, Index number: ASA 24/007/2013

Amnesty International welcomes the Report of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The report’s identification of nine underlying patterns of violations provides a useful framework to understand the breadth and gravity of human rights violations in the DPRK. Amnesty International particularly welcomes the report’s call for the establishment of an inquiry mechanism with adequate resources to investigate and more fully document grave, systematic and widespread human rights violations in the DPRK.
