North Korea breaching shipping, trade, and financial sanctions: UN report

The DPRK has also increased the scope of cyber and hacking activities

North Korea continued to circumvent UN sanctions on shipping and trade, according to a new mid-term report from the UN Panel of Experts (PoE) published on Thursday.

Poor sanctions implementation allows North Korea continued access to the global financial system, while the DPRK has also stepped up large scale hacking efforts, the report noted.
