A UN human rights office, to monitor human rights conditions in North Korea will be set up in South Korea.
The Geneva-based Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said Wednesday that its Field Based Structure will be set up in Seoul.
The South Korean government has already given its approval.
The decision to open the Seoul office was made after the UN council adopted a report in March denouncing North Korea's systematic human rights violations.
The field office will be operated independently according to UN's basic principles.
It is expected to be set up in the latter half of this year.

Will this help?

It depends on what the definition of 'human rights' is. Today homosexuality is considered a civil right or human right.

There will be no homosexual marriages in the D.P.R.K..

There will be no gay pride parades marching in Kim Il-sung Square.

Romans 1:26 - 27

Romans Chapter 1
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

(Notice how the men burned with LUST toward each other. Not love.)
