Poland has today been published in a list of countries using labour from North Korea by the European Alliance for Human Right in North Korea, (EAHRNK), a UK based organisation.
The controversial forced work schemes are organised from the North Korean capital, Pyongyang to accumulate wealth for the communist state.
It is alleged that 800 North Koreans have come to Poland to work in recent years primarily in the shipyards and orchards in the country.
Poland are among two European Union countries on the list, the other being Malta. The hiring contravenes employment laws in both countries.
The news comes as a surprise given that all of the other countries listed, are places with questionable human rights records such as; China, Mongolia, Nepal, Oman and the UAE, among many others.
