33 North Koreans leave Nepal amid broader crackdown, report to UN says

Kathmandu also reported to have ordered DPRK-linked businesses be shut down

33 North Koreans resident in Nepal left the country prior to October 31 upon orders from the government, the country said in a report on its implementation of international sanctions to the UN this week, amid a broader crackdown on DPRK-linked businesses and individuals.

In a letter dated November 6 and aimed at detailing the country's efforts in enforcing UN resolutions against the DPRK, the Nepalese government reported that visas issued to North Koreans living in the country had expired at the end of last month.
