Thousands of North Korean women and girls are being forced into marriage and prostitution and subjected to sadistic abuse by trafficking gangs running a multimillion-dollar illicit sex industry in China.
A report by the Korea Future Initiative, presented in the House of Commons today (Monday), says vulnerable women and girls as young as 12 are being tricked into fleeing North Korea only to be sold as sex slaves in China.
Ensnared by the gangs, they face the choice of becoming sex slaves or being repatriated to the oppressive state where they face torture in prison camps and even possible execution.
