North Korea Suspected of Selling Rice in Relief Aid Market
APF, Feb 16, 2005
A Japanese relief group said Tuesday, that it suspected North Korean authorities had sold international food and medical aid intended for victims of a serious train explosion last April.
The group, which supports people fleeing the Stalinist state, said it had obtained videotape showing such supplies being sold in a market in the port city of Chongjin on the east coast.
A member of the group, called Rescue the North Korean People Urgent Action Network, took the videotape last July, according to an Osaka-based spokeswoman.
The tape was recently brought out of North Korea when the member fled the country, she said. At Sunam market, sacks of relief goods such as rice and maize were stacked up, she said. The sacks indicated they were provided by the United States, South Korea, China and Britain. Some of the sacks had the marking of the UN's World Food Program and the South Korean Red Cross, she added.
