Defectors of North Korea provided graphic testimony to South Korean newspaper Donga Ilbo about what prisoners face during their sentences, UPI reported Tuesday.
The women are victims of sexual assault in prison camps at the hands of security guards who reportedly often trade sexual favors for less work while in camps, according to the report.
One particular allegation from a defector “who grew up in a North Korean prison camp for more than two decades” said that women who become pregnant after being raped by guards are removed from the camp and “secretly killed by guards,” according to UPI.
The defector, 29-year-old Park Ju-yong, said that after childbirth, the mothers are executed and their newborn babies are provided as food to guard dogs.
