NGO urges solution to N.Korean foreign labor exploitation

Russia, Qatar, Kuwait and Malaysia enable N.Korean government to exploit workers

Governments of countries where North Korean laborers are employed should do more to address exploitative conditions, according to a new report from the People for Successful Corean Reunification (PSCORE), a human rights focused NGO.

The group conducted interviews with 20 North Korean defectors in summer this year who have experience working in numerous countries including Russia, Kuwait, Malaysia, China and Qatar. They asked questions about selection processes, wages, working and living conditions.
