Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: How much crime is there in the DPRK?

Theft and other crime occurs in North Korea like any other country, but the state is selective in what it punishes

“Ask a North Korean” is an NK News series featuring interviews with and columns by North Korean defectors, most of whom left the DPRK within the last few years.

Readers may submit their questions for defectors by emailing [email protected] and including their first name and city of residence.
