Inmates at such camps are thought to be systematically eliminated through “deliberate starvation, forced labor, executions, torture, rape and the denial of reproductive rights.” Denied the opportunity to collectively advocate for their rights, women continue to be marginalized and many suffer sexual violence. In terms of class discrimination, at least, the Songbun classification system assigned to an individual at birth is said to be losing its grip as the result of grassroots marketization and the increasing flow of foreign currency within the North.In releasing the report, former Australian High Court Justice Michael Kirby urged the international community to take action in the face of overwhelming evidence that the North Korean regime continues to violate the human rights of its citizens. The COI further requested that UN member states, including China, “abstain from forcibly repatriating any persons” back to North Korea.
