The Odds of Remaining Free in China

North Korean refugees in China carry no recognized ID, remain continuously defenseless to arrest, detention, trafficking, slavery, brutality & ultimately, repatriation.

From 70 %- 95% of all North Korean women [who take refuge in China] fall into sex trafficking.

At present, 400 - 500 North Korean refugees are repatriated every week from China to North Korea.

Furthermore, the Chinese are prepared to detain & repatriate as many as 2,500 per week as the need arises.
