North Korea has investigated itself, found things are pretty much OK

Following a United Nations report into North Korean human rights abuses which found they had committed unparalleled human rights violations, North Korea has released its own report. Astonishingly, North Korea's Association for Human Rights Studies found things were pretty much fine.

You can see the 50,000+ word report here. The Washington Post notes it's basically a lengthy summary of all the human rights North Koreans enjoy without mentioning, for example, forced labour camps or the fact it is a dictatorship. If you want to know a bit more about human rights violations in North Korea, we recommend this video from Amnesty International about life in North Korea's prison camps.
