[Financial Times] South Korea must remember the abuses Pyongyang would rather forget
On October 26th, the Financial Times released an opinion article regarding South Korea's lack of policy regarding future transitional justice and accountability measures for North Korean human rights violations. The article references the work that NKDB carries out with regards to collecting data on North Korean human rights, and how in recent years the South Korean government has made that work more difficult, claiming that the work duplicates the government's own documentation efforts.
“It has been suggested that our work is not necessary anymore because the government has started to collect its own testimonies,” said Hanna Song, NKDB’s director of international co-operation. “But we don’t know what questions they are actually asking, or whether there is any consistency from government to government.”
