article imageNorth Korea proposes 'all-inclusive' report on human rights

By Walter McDaniel     Aug 11, 2014 in World
Pyongyang - Officials were reportedly unhappy with a detailed report by the United Nations which detailed some severe human rights abuses. Now a new project from the government itself which they promise will be "all-inclusive."
Earlier in this year U.N. officials published multiple scathing reports which not only brought up human rights abuses by put forth grounds for prosecuting North Korean officials. Other sites delved further into the abuses as well leading to significant bad press. Now government authorities there have decided to launch their own study.
North Korean representatives believe that reports are false and are another attempt to demonize the nation. As such they will soon be working on their own version centered on Pyonyang and a few other areas which they are planning to release across the world.
When they say "all-inclusive" many are skeptical. Questions have arisen about how open certain industries will be on film-making to the rights of women. According to the reports you can see in this very article officials have a history of abuse in these areas.
North Korea rarely issues studies like this and they have also been tightening control on many aspects of their society from private childcare to chocolate biscuits. Officials have also turned their attention to Japan and are attempting to foster a good relationship between the countries.
So it is clear that things that government has become even more active than usual. Why is this? Many believe it has something to do with rising capitalism in the country. When and if capitalism replaces socialism in the state politicians could find their power slipping. For now China and Korea are standing together to stop further prosecution by U.N. authorities.
