UK All Party Parliamentary Group on North Korea

On 28 June the All Party Parliamentary Group on North Korea hosted a session on North Korea prison camps. I’ve attended a couple of these before but this was very well attended by comparison. The NK Brief gave it a mention. There was testimony of Kim Hye-sook as well as another North Korean guy whose name I couldn’t find. Which is a shame because he spoke well. Ha Tae-kyoung from Open Radio North Korea gave a few words as did Amnesty International. This event also involved Christian Solidarity Worldwide which has worked closely with the APPG on North Korea. We got to hear about Lord Alton, Chair of the APPG on North Korea’s trip to North Korea in addition to the testimony of the guest speakers. The questions were there usual ones on ‘what can we do?’ and ‘what do you think about tourists going to North Korea and giving money to the regime?’ but overall it was a good session.
