Crimes for which North Koreans can find themselves sent to a prison camp can allegedly include failure to wipe dust off portraits of Kim Il-sung and having contact with South Koreans. Conditions in the country's prison and labour camps are notoriously harsh. Survivors have described prisoners becoming stunted and deformed from carrying out hard labour for 12 hours a day, seven days a week.
Clothing and food are said to be so scarce inmates are forced to survive on any animals they can capture such as rats.
Access to non-state-controlled media
Although North Korea’s constitution theoretically guarantees freedom of speech, all domestic media outlets are owned by the one-party state and no reporting is allowed that isn't sanctioned by the government.
The regime goes to great lengths to stop any outside media reaching its population. The NGO, Freedom House, reports that listening to unauthorized foreign broadcasts, watching foreign TV shows and possessing dissident publications are considered “crimes against the state”. Those caught face execution or being sent to labour camps.
