North Korea’s Winter Olympics cheerleaders ‘forced into sex slavery’

The North Korean cheerleaders at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang are used as sex slaves by top politicians, a defector has claimed.

Lee So-yeon, a 42-year-old former military musician who fled to South Korea in 2008, said dancers and singers were forced to strip and provide sexual services at parties held every day for the country’s Central Politburo.

Members of the decision-making committee include North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and the President Kim Yong-nam.
