According to the New York Times, North Korea is "known to have stockpiled" chemical weapons, and US and South Korean authorities have accused its government of orchestrating the plot. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. The group said the new report was made possible by funding from the Washington-based National Endowment for Democracy, which is funded by the U.S. Congress.
But the issue of North Korea's human rights abuses has largely been off the table, TJWG said, adding it will continue documenting the violations rampant in the reclusive regime.
The group said 83% of a sample of 84 surveyed people had witnessed a public execution at some time, but it did not give specific data on how common such executions might be, or whether they were getting more or less frequent. While public executions were more common in the 1990s, North Korea continues to carry them out for the objective of instilling fear in the general population, the report said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's deceased half brother, Kim Jong Nam, was working as an informant for the Central Intelligence Agency, a person familiar with the matter said in a Wall Street Journal report.
The new campaign group report comes amid media reports that a senior North Korean official was executed by a firing squad in March following the collapse of a second summit between Kim and US President Donald Trump in Hanoi.
The Hanoi summit broke down over US demands for North Korea's denuclearization and North Korean demands for sanctions relief. Public executions are nearly always preceded by brief "trials" on the spot where charges are announced and sentences are issued without legal counsel for the accused, the report said. With a lack of due process in the North's judicial system, it's unclear whether the charges announced at the executions would actually match the act of the accused, the report said. The bodies and burial locations of those killed were rarely given to their relatives.
The report alleges that family members of those sentenced to death, including children, were sometimes forced to watch the event.
