New York: The Human Rights Watch claimed in a new report on Thursday that North Korean officials commit sexual abuse against women with near total impunity. The extensive 98-page report is based on interviews of a total of 106 North Koreans, comprising 72 women, four girls, and 30 men, who have fled from North Korea, reports CNN.

Sexual violence in the country is “an open, unaddressed, and widely tolerated secret”, said Kenneth Roth, Human Rights Watch’s Executive Director. “North Korean woman would probably say ‘Me Too’ if they thought there was any way to obtain justice, but their voices are silenced in Kim Jong-un’s dictatorship.” (IANS)
