North Korea: Freedom of movement, opinion and expression - Information sheet
Thousands of North Koreans illegally cross the border into China every year. If caught by the Chinese authorities and forcibly returned, they face detention, torture and, if convicted of illegal border-crossing, execution. Freedom of opinion and expression is severely restricted in North Korea. All media is controlled by the state, and dissent is not tolerated. In this information sheet, Amnesty International calls on the government of North Korea to ensure the rights to freedom of movement, to expression and religion are not criminalized and are provided for in the legal system.
