VOA story cited in special UN human rights report

One of two Voice of America exclusive stories by reporter Eun Jung Cho covering abusive practices against North Korean workers in Qatar was cited in a special United Nations human rights report, and focuses fresh attention on North Korea’s mistreatment of its civilian workforce. The story cites a meeting between North Korean officials and Qatar’s Construction Development Company (CDC) in which the construction company fired nearly half its North Korean workers, as a result of their supervisors’ repeated violations of Qatar labor laws.
