Quote of the Day: North Korean Forced Labor System Almost Identical to Cuba's

Friday, November 13, 2015
The Kim dictatorship is known for its crimes against humanity. Yet, the scope of its cruelty never ceases to astonish—the North Korean government’s exploitation and abuse of its people extends well beyond the borders of the dictatorship. Incidentally, this nefarious State-sponsored system implemented to earn foreign currency is almost identical to the one put in place by the Cuban dictatorship, which ships health-care workers worldwide and makes billions of dollars through the exploitation of workers with no rights whatsoever.
-- Thor Halvorssen, president of The Human Rights Foundation, on this week's report by the U.N. Special Rapporteur condemning the forced labor conditions suffered by approximately 50,000 Koreans who were sent by the Kim regime to work abroad, 11/12/15
