Pyongyang, Feb 27: A North Korean defector has claimed that cheerleaders at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang are being used as sex slaves for top politicians, including Kim Jong-un. The defector also said that dancers and singers were forced to undress at parties held for the Central Politburo– the main decision-making committee of North Korea. These parties are allegedly being held everyday where cheerleaders provide sexual services to senior people in the North Korean regime.

He told Bloomberg that art troupe from North Korea, which provides entertainment and carry forward Kim Jong-un’s propaganda, is also required to provide sexual services to politicians.
He said the women have to undress if they attended the winter Olympics. He further said that the women were treated like objects and were forced to bear physical pain.

He said even athletes were Kim Jong-un’s sports ‘slaves’. He said the regime chooses people with loyal background and who are unlikely to defect. He said that everybody is a slave to Kim Jong-un.
