2004 BBC Report
In 2004 BBC journalists interviewed a North
Korean woman. A former prisoner who stated
the truth about what happens in North Korean
prisons all over the country. Human
experiments with the use of bio-chemical
weapons. She said that 50 women were chosen
to eat poisoned cabbage even though they
could hear the screams of the people that went
before them. They were afraid for their families.
Kwon Hyok was a former Head of security at
Prison Camp 22. A prison which was fully
equipped with poison gas, suffocation gas, and
medical staff which took care of blood
experiments. Usually members of a family
would be taken together in to a small room were
the three or four of them would be subject to a
poisonous gas which would lead to a slow and
painful death. A shocking fact is that while the
children were dying, the parents breathed into
their mouth, just to keep the alive.

Lee was one of not many who escaped from life
imprisonment from a camp close to the Chinese
border. As a witness, she stated about human
experiments which led to the death of prisoners.
All of this was backed up by a series of satellite
photos of the prison in which she was kept.
Ahn Mtung Chul recollected on how prisoners
were used for young doctors who used the
prisoners for test operations. The prisoners
would be operated, without anesthetics,
Camp 22 is North Korea's biggest concentration
camp, located in Haengyong, close to the
border of Russia and China. It is a place where
a thousand men, women and children are held.
Accused of political crimes, they are subject to
an even worse crime. Human experimentation.
Families are killed in glass rooms, watched by
army officials, medical staff and other prisoners.
One thing that is for
certain is that the
gases and viruses the
test on the prisoners,
are with no doubt
used in missiles.
Hundreds of missiles
of mass destruction
filled with viruses and
gases which cause
I myself am shocked by what is going on in
North Korea. The truth is that the majority of
North Korea's people would want to do
something about it but living in such an
indoctrinated country makes it hard. Anyone
who is seen as opposing the government is
sent to prison, tortured and finally killed.
Everyday children are taught to hate America
and all of its people, not knowing about what is
going on in hundreds of empty cities, turned into
prisons and places of mass murder.
'It would be a total lie for me to say I
feel sympathetic about the children dying
such a painful death. Under the society
and the regime I was in at the time, I only
felt that they were the enemies. So I felt
no sympathy or pity for them at all.'

Security at Camp
