North Korea crimes to be documented for prosecution someday

The resolution for investigating North Korea's crimes against humanity was brought by Japan and the European Union and it had the backing of United States.

The renewed pressure on North Korea comes after UN-led report said this week that chronic food shortages and malnutrition are widespread in the hermit nation.

North Korea's state media says its military has tested a new high-performance rocket engine.

In a separate event, Malaysia Health Minister Subramaniam Sathasivam said negotiations are now underway involving the Foreign Ministry and the Prime Minister's Department on the Malaysian side and the North Korean government.

The UN human rights office in Seoul would be strengthened for two years with worldwide criminal justice experts to establish a central repository for testimony and evidence "with a view to developing possible strategies to be used in any future accountability process".

However, there was no sign of the spokesman and former North Korean deputy ambassador to the UN, Ri Tong-il as he was not seen entering the embassy back after the alleged meeting in Jalan Bellamy last Saturday.

The U.N. resolution calls on the global community to cooperate in identifying North Korea crimes against humanity, based on a report from the U.N. Commission of Inquiry that has surveyed the violations, often using testimonies from North Korea defectors.

The entry by Malaysian police points toward an agreement on the processing of Kim Jong-nam's body, as well as on the recording of statements by the three suspected accomplices said to be holed up in the embassy, the report says. It was a fraudulent document full of "lies, fabrications and plots".

"We are still tracking them and several others", he said, refusing to disclose on the number of suspects wanted by police.

On the issue of Japanese abductees, the resolution expresses "grave concern" at the lack of positive action by North Korea and calls for settling the matter as quickly as possible.

An official who spoke to online newspaper Malay Mail said that after the change in policy, no North Koreans had entered the country.
