CHILLING new satellite images have emerged of one of North Korea’s prison camps – and the pictures are so precise you can make out the individual prisoners.
The latest images show the North Korean inmates of Prison Camp No 25 – Kwan-li-so No 25 – probably engaged in forced labour.
One image released by the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK) based in Washington DC appears to show prisoners harvesting crops while being watched by their guards.
Although details of the camp are scarce due to the repressive nature of the Kim Jog-un’s dictatorial regime, it is thought the camp is home to around 5,000 political prisoners.
The camp is located in Susong-dong, Chongjin-si, North Hamgyong Province, on the northeast coast of North Korea.
It is believed to be the most northern political camp known to be in operation in the communist country.
According to HRNK, Camp 25 is one of the most notorious in North Korea and has doubled in size in the time Kim has been in power.
Last year HRNK highlighted how the various camps had grown as Kim cracked down on any sort of dissent to his rule.
The images revealed gallows, electric fences and huge crematoriums.
HRNK executive director Greg Scarlatoiu said: “Our satellite imagery analysis of Camp No. 25 and other such unlawful detention facilities appears to confirm the sustained, if not increased importance of the use of forced labour under Kim Jong-un.”
Mr Scarlatoiu said at the time Kim Jong-un’s paranoid regime has intensified its crackdown on attempted defections by top officials.
It has also banged up civilians trying to flee refugees along with family members and friends.
This comes after new Amnesty International footage emerged showing how two North Korean notorious political prison camps, known as kwanliso, are being upgraded with new facilities – including a bigger crematorium to hide the bodies of those who have died at the hand of the regime.

The regime, led by Kim Jong-un, have repeatedly said the “hellish” camps don’t exist, but Amnesty International have photographed the vast network which is said to hold thousands of people and is visible from space.
They conducted research on kwanliso 15 and kwanliso 25, just two of the camps which hold men, women and children – most of whom have committed no crimes but are being punished through guilt by association as family of those deemed to be threatening by the regime.
The photos show new guard posts, the upgrading of a reported crematorium and on-going agricultural activities.
