Czech Republic to seek foreign workers from Mongolia PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 12 June 2007

Mongolia will be one of two countries to replace North Korean foreign workers in the Czech Republic being forced to return home. 

The Czech government will not renew the work visas of some 200 North Korean workers. Czech officials have said the North Korean workers will not be allowed to return due to North Korea’s refusal to abide by United Nations’ resolutions on their nuclear armaments program. 

Additionally, countries employing North Korean workers have been warned that employees are often forced to hand over pay to the North Korean government, as opposed to retaining their earnings. 

"Because the North Korean government takes a major portion of workers' salaries, these arrangements provide material support for a rogue government, its nuclear ambitions, and its human-rights atrocities," Jay Lefkowitz, a U.S. presidential envoy for North Korean Human Rights, said in an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal earlier this year. 

Besides Mongolia, Viet Nam will be invited to send workers to the Czech Republic.
