North Korea is in for a seriously rude awakening.
Recently a former North Korean prison camp guard spoke out about what she saw before defecting. Basically, Kim Jong-Un is akin to Hitler. Inmates are not treated as human beings and the country does not follow any proper guidelines for how inmates should be treated. Beheading, starvation, forced labor, and torture do not fall into the categories of reasonable treatment of criminals. Yes, the are being punished for their crimes but not in any form of a humane manner.
“Those who die are the lucky ones,” said one former guard. The North Korean prison guards “do not see them as human beings, just as animals,” Lim Hye-jin, the first former female guard to speak openly about her experiences, told the Daily Mail in a recent interview.
Satellite images show that North Korea’s prison camps, where inmates are subjected to forced labor, torture, starvation, and death, have expanded under Kim Jong Un’s reign of terror, CNN reported in November 2016. Amnesty International estimates that these camps are home to roughly 200,000 people, maybe more.
Once, when two brothers broke out of prison, the guards murdered seven of their family members on the spot, and numerous other prisoners were beaten. After they were recaptured, the two brothers were beheaded, Lim, who defected over a decade ago, told reporters. “The two brothers were beheaded in front of everyone,” she revealed, “They called everyone to watch as a warning not to flee. The other prisoners then had to throw stones at them.”
Lim described this incident as one of the most terrible she saw during her seven years as a North Korean guard.
