Global Post, April 30, 2011: Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter headed back home empty-handed this weekend in a seemingly failed mission, incapable of ameliorating 60 years of tension between the Koreas. [...] “Carter was used by North Korea like a fool,” said Toshimitsu Shigemura, an expert on North Korea at Waseda University in Tokyo. [...] Carter was accompanied by three other former Western state leaders — including former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari, ex-Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland and former Irish President Mary Robinson. All of them are members ofThe Elders,” a group of eminent global leaders founded by South African icon Nelson Mandela - Kim Jong Il snubs Jimmy Carter

The Telegraph, September 13, 2011: As much as half of North Korea's army is starving as food shortages that were previously affecting only the civilian population worsen and begin to affect institutions tasked with protecting Kim Jong-Il's regime - Half of North Korea's army 'starving'

Chosun Ilbo, September 24, 2011: At least 480 prisons and detention facilities are scattered around North Korea, an NGO claimed Tuesday. Based on testimony of about 13,000 North Korean defectors, North Korean Human Rights Archives said the regime operates 210 detention centers and 210 labor camps, 23 prisons, 5 indoctrination camps, 27 holding facilities, and 6 political prison camps including in Yodok, Pukchang and Hoeryong. Detention centers are similar to police holding cells, but holding facilities and indoctrination camps are clandestine operations that have been used to hold repatriated defectors without trial since the early years of the millennium. Prisons house convicts, who are subjected to forced labor, but the worst human rights abuses occur in political prison camps - N.Korea 'Has Far More Prisons Than Previously Believed'

Formålet med det nylig omtalte fangeamnestiet i Nord-Korea er muligens å rydde plass til disse:

    Kanal PIK, January 11, 2012: North Korean citizens, who did not take part in mourning ceremonies for the country’s late Leader Kim Jong-il, are facing up to six months in labor camps, Interfax reported January 11. According to South Korean media sources, “People’s Courts” took place all over the country starting December 29 to condemn those who did not show enough emotion after the death of “Great Leader” Kim Jong-il. The People’s Court hearings were reportedly over by January 8. The behavior of those who criticized the three-generation principle of ruling the country was also a matter of discussion during the court meetings - North Korea Punishes Citizens for Lack of Emotion at Leader's Death

Mail Online, January 27, 2013: A starving man in North Korea has been executed after murdering his two children for food, reports from inside the secretive state claim. A 'hidden famine' in the farming provinces of North and South Hwanghae is believed to have killed up to 10,000 people and there are fears that incidents of cannibalism have risen. The grim story is just one to emerge as residents battle starvation after a drought hit farms and shortages were compounded by party officials confiscating food. Undercover reporters from Asia Press told the Sunday Times that one man dug up his grandchild's corpse and ate it. Another, boiled his own child for food. Despite reports of the widespread famine, Kim Jong Un, 30, has spent vast sums of money on two rocket launches in recent months - North Korean parents 'eating their own children' after being driven mad by hunger in famine-hit pariah state
