‘Removed’ Kim cult needed for human rights – UN rapporteur

Darusman: North Korean diplomats warned of 'hardliners' coming to power if UN rights resolution passed

The UN’s special rapporteur on human rights in North Korea said that efforts to fundamentally improve the regime’s human rights environment may not be possible under its current leadership’s personality cult.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Marzuki Darusman said that, while not advocating an invasion, a drastic change might nonetheless be necessary, particularly to help those trapped in the North’s political prison camps.
