Seoul seeking partner for North Korean human rights database project: MOU
Upgraded system is needed to punish perpetrators and help victims, unification ministry says

South Korea's Ministry of Unification (MOU) plans to establish an integrated online information management system on North Korean human rights, a tender proposal for potential bidders seen by NK News this week showed.

The ministry said it was necessary to accumulate data, including details on victims, perpetrators, and prison camps, to upgrade the Center for North Korean Human Rights Records' previously "manual" information-gathering.
