Resolution 37/28 (DPRK) A/RES/37/28
The HRC expressed deep concern about the systematic, widespread and gross human rights violations in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea that, in many instances, constitute crimes against humanity. The HRC decided to extend the mandate of the Special Rapporteur for a period of one year and requested the Office of the High Commissioner to report on its follow up efforts in the regular annual report of the Secretary-General submitted to the General Assembly on the situation of human rights in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. The resolution "recalls the responsibility of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to protect its population from crimes against humanity" and was adopted without a vote.
