UN tells world governments not to repatriate escaped North Korean refugees

The United Nations is calling on world governments to refrain from repatriating North Korean refugees.

U.N. Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Nada al-Nashif said Monday that member countries must not send North Korean escapees back to the hermitic nation.

She made the comment in a meeting with South Korean Unification Ministry official Kang Jong-suk, according to Yonhap News Agency.

 

The four refugees – reportedly a man and three women – claimed to be from the same family.

South Korea reports providing sanctuary for approximately 30,000 North Korean citizens who fled their oppressive conditions under supreme leader Kim Jong Un’s regime.
