The North Korean regime has always denied the much speculated brutal treatment of inmates inside its prison camps and detention centres. Now, a newly exposed video offers a glimpse of the truth.
Alleged inhumane conditions inside North Koran prison camps:
- Work accidents
A shocking video has emerged of North Korean security agents allegedly beating a woman accused of having sex with Chinese and South Korean men after fleeing her home country.
The 2012 video shows a state security agent interrogating the woman before roughing her up. He is seen beating repeatedly while her hands are bound behind her back, kicking her in the face and lifting her up by her hair before shoving her face into the wall.
What appears to be blood can be seen dripping on the wall behind her.
Frustrated by the woman’s claims of innocence, the security guard appears to grab a rope and strangle the woman, before releasing his grip.
The footage also shows a man, who is also accused of fleeing to China, being tortured.
A guard is seen repeatedly twisting the man’s legs with a stick before forcing him to stand. He then punches the victim in the back of the head and neck while accusing him of tearing up a photo of the late Kim Jung-il.
If such harsh treatment is doled out for relatively minor offences, imagine the punishment for more severe crimes.
