“My uncle died of starvation in front of me.”
We hear from a North Korean refugee who escaped their country twice. The harrowing story includes forced repatriation, famine, torture in North Korean labor camps as well as trafficking.
Now speaking from the safety of the UK, they talk about what life is like in North Korea, reuniting with their son in China and the harrowing torture within the labor camps.
Informer is a series where we hear the anonymised confessions and insights of people in positions of power on the inside of important institutions.
