Last month, the ministry Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) released a report expressing deep concern over the persecution many face in North Korea. CSW advocated for launching a United Nations Commission on Inquiry to further investigate the country’s crimes, according to Christian Headlines.

As the report explains, religious freedom in North Korea is “largely non-existent” and faith-based persecution has been common place since the 1950s because religious beliefs are “seen as a threat to the loyalty demanded by the Supreme Leader.” While Christians are the main target of abuse, Buddhism and Shamanism are also practiced in the country and “suppressed to varying degrees.”
