North Korean worker files legal complaint against Dutch firm over forced labor

Complaint says Dutch firm knew of "inhumane, slave-like" conditions faced by DPRK workers in Poland

A North Korean worker based overseas has filed a criminal complaint against a Dutch firm for allegedly profiting from modern slavery, the human rights law firm Prakken d’Oliveira announced in a press release on Thursday.

The firm detailed the complaint and its representation of the North Korean man on its website, saying the laborer - who could not be named for safety reasons - endured 12-hour work days in unsafe conditions and with the DPRK government seizing much of his wages.
