Hundreds of thousands of North Koreans have been forced to escape to China in order to survive. They are refugees as defined by international law because the Democratic People's Republic of Korea criminalizes and savagely punishes those leaving the country.In contravention of China's obligations under the U.N. Refugee Convention, its 1967 Protocol and the U.N. Convention Against Torture, the country systematically has denied the office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees access to the North Korean refugee population. China continues to hunt down and forcibly repatriate refugees to North Korea, where they are brutally tortured and either executed or imprisoned in hellish concentration camps.
