The way they torture the Christian in the North Korea

A new report by the House of Lords details torture and persecution of Christians in North Korea's concentration camps.
The following comes from an email sent by Lord David Alton, a Catholic member of England’s House of Lords. He is co-chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on North Korea.

“Christmas spent in a North Korean gulag will be just another day of grotesque suffering. Evidence given at a recent inquiry held at Westminster revealed a catalogue of egregious and systematic crimes against humanity – with Christians often targeted for especially cruel and inhumane treatment. The Inquiry’s findings add to the demands made last month at the UN, by 111 countries, that those responsible for these violations should be brought before the International Criminal Court.

“We who enjoy political and religious freedom, free to celebrate Christmas with our loved ones, must speak out and take practical actions to help bring the long winter of oppression to an end. This report should be essential Christmas reading for Governments, MPs, and policy makers.”

Quotations from the report:

Kim Il-sung quotes: “religious people should die to cure their habit”
“(We) cannot carry such religiously active people along our march toward a communist society. Therefore, we have tried and executed all religious leaders higher than a deacon in the Protestant and Catholic churches. Among other religiously active people, those deemed malignant were all put to trial. Among ordinary religious believers, those who recanted were given jobs while those who did not were held in prison camps.” (1962).

DPRK citizens were commanded to “Accept the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il-sung’s revolutionary thought as your belief and take the Great Leader’s instructions as your creed.”
 
One refugee described how he and his wife hid under a blanket to sing hymns, whereas another reported how their friend was taken to one of the most notorious prison camps in the DPRK after being seen saying grace over dinner.
 
Propaganda In one DPRK book, ‘The Jackals’, a cartoon shows an American missionary poisoning a Korean boy.
 
State surveillance
 
One former Public Safety Agency employee recounts: “we gave instructions to the neighbourhood unit and the Primary Party Committee to watch certain [Christian] people. We told them to watch them closely and report the people who visit them. We were to be informed every 15 days.”
