North Korea still a top tier human rights violation country
According to the US Department of State Report on International Prison Conditions, Iran, Iraq, Madagascar, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Cambodia, Myanmar, and North Korea were chosen as the countries having the worst prison conditions in the world. The report states that these prison are inadequately resourced detention facilities to intentional and calculated acts of mistreatment by repressive governments. In North Korea, political detainees are routinely subjected to systematic physical and psychological mistreatment. Prisoners experience severe beatings, electric shock, public nakedness, confinement in small immobile cells, and the coercion of mothers to watch infanticide of their newborns.
