Republic of Korea

Transitional Justice Working Group (TJWG)

As a human rights documentation NGO, TJWG has published biennial reports on public executions in North Korea based on interviews with North Korean defectors in 2017, 2019 and 2021.

TJWG has also been calling for the complete abolition of the death penalty in North and South Korea, which has maintained it in the laws even though no one has actually been executed since December 1997.
