North Korea is castrating dwarfs and subjecting them to chemical weapons testing, it was claimed today.
Ji Seong-ho, a defector who is himself disabled, said the dwarfs were rounded up and given the snip in a bid to rid them from the country.
A village in the mountains has been turned into a make-shift asylum for people with the condition, he added.
‘They were forbidden to leave. The men were castrated so they would become extinct. There’s no-one left there by now,’ the 32-year-old said.
Mr Ji, who is writing a book on North Korea’s treatment of disabled people, also claimed babies with mental and physical handicaps were being snatched from hospitals in a bid to ‘cleanse’ the country of the disabled.
He said: ‘The regime wants to do this “legally” so they offer to buy disabled children from their parents.
‘If that doesn’t work, they threaten them.’
