Shin Dong-hyuk, the noted North Korean human rights activist and one-time political prison camp inmate, is to receive an award from UN Watch to recognize his efforts in raising awareness of human rights abuses in North Korea.

Mr. Shin will receive the 2013 Moral Courage Award in Geneva on the 5th of June. The award marks a remarkable couple of years for Shin in which an account of his time inside Camp 14 has become a New York Times bestseller.
