United Nations investigators say North Korean leaders, and possibly even Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, could be brought before the International Criminal Court for ordering mass murder, torture, starvation, slavery and other crimes against humanity. We discuss the details of the U.N. report and what the international community can do in response.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Phil Robertson, deputy director of the Asia Division at Human Rights Watch
