• Entities - facilitating illicit activities

Welcome to the Pyongyang Papers!

On this site you will find a searchable index of individuals and entities with links to North Korea sanctioned by the UN, regional bodies or individual countries. We have also collated information from across the Internet including sourced from the international press, think tanks and pressure groups who have conducted their own investigations into DPRK sanctions evasion.

Check out our databases of people, organizations, ships or aircraft listed for, or accused of association with, sanctions evasion. You can also check out our list of UN Panel of Experts reports.
