Report of the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea

The entire report (4.1MB) can be downloaded here.  http://www.ohchr.org/Documents/HRBodies/HRCouncil/CoIDPRK/Report/A.HRC.25.63.doc

Note there are a number of resources on the web page below.

This report could be useful for Psychological Operations directed at the 2d tier leadership and the north Korean population. 

The ROKG (and the north Korean defector organizations) should try to get this information into north Korea to let the population know that the international community knows what is going on inside north Korea and that the regime is to blame.  Although it is unlikely to spur change or resistance when post-conflict or post-collapse occurs the knowledge that the outside world identified the Kim Family Regime as a human rights violators and international criminals could be helpful in influencing in the population/


Of course China is going to veto taking the issue to the International Criminal Court and that could be an important message to the north Korean people.  It will be important to identify those who sided with the north Korean population and those who did not.
