Kaechon internment camp

Kaechon internment camp


Kaechon, Democratic People's Republic of Korea (KP)
Kaechon internment camp is a labor camp in North Korea for political prisoners. The official name is Kwan-li-so (Penal-labor colony) No. 14. It is not to be confused with Kaechon concentration camp (Kyo-hwa-so No. 1), which is located 20 km (13 miles) to the north-west. The human rights situation in both camps is equally bad, so the term concentration camp fits also for this camp.
