Response to Yes OP south Korea is the world's worst violater!!

 

"he Seoul regime has been notorious in using sexual violence aganist its female political prisoners, with least 250,000 vicitms of this torture method each year."

Pavel, this seems more likely the product of your feverish imagination (fuelled I don't doubt by those pulp paperbacks that were popular in the nineteen fifties with titles like "caged Heat" and "Lesbian Prison Gangs") rather than reality.

There are some 48 million people in South Korea. If we assume that half of them are women then you are claiming that one percent of S Korean women are raped by policemen -- every year! This is frankly bizarre. It is even more so when one considers that there are about 100,000 police officers in the National Police Agency and at least some of these are women (or perhaps Pavel, per your paperbacks these are the offenders?) so each policemen must rape more than two women a year -- and in the line of duty too!

Unless Pavel suggests that the same 250,000 women are raped each year; the share of the population that has been raped will become rather high no?
