245 N. Korean Officials Documented to have Violated Human Rights

According to the Ministry of Justice on Monday, the North Korean Human Rights Archive has so far documented 245 North Korean officials as having committed human rights abuses
 
Most of the perpetrators were within the regime's secret services, its police force as well as other powerful government bodies. They are believed to have physically abused and tortured citizens, along with cases of sexual assault and forced abortions.

The archive has been compiling and analyzing cases of such violations and the identity of the abusers, based on interviews with North Korean defectors as well as other sources since its founding in October of last year.
 
A ministry spokesman said that it will continue to identify new cases. The number of perpetrators is likely to grow as the ministry has already received 110 new cases this month.
