Q&A Scarlatiou & Beattie / Nokor Human Rights / The United States says it supports a U.N. investigator's request that the organization's Human Rights Council open an inquiry into North Korea's human rights record for possible crimes against humanity when it meets in Geneva later this month. U.N. special rapporteur Marzuki Darusman says he wants to look into allegations of "grave, widespread and systematic" human rights violations. Greg Scarlatiou, exective director of the rights group Committee for Human Rights in North Korea, tells VOA's Victor Beattie this is a real opportunity to deal with this issue.
