North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is often criticized for his government's human rights abuses.
A peace and humanitarian prize that was previously awarded to Mahatma Gandhi and Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi will soon be given to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

An Indonesian organization announced plans last week to give North Korea's Supreme Leader its statesmanship award, which celebrates "peace, justice and humanity." The Sukarno Education Foundation quickly found itself on the defensive.

Kim "should be honoured for his fight against neo-colonialist imperialism," Rachmawati Sukarnoputri, the daughter of Indonesia's first president, told the Agence France-Presse.

As for the allegations of human rights abuses in North Korea, they are "untrue," she said. "That's all just Western propaganda. Those Western governments like to put ugly labels on North Korea."

North Korea's secretive government have been criticized worldwide for human rights abuses and crimes against humanity, as its people have suffered ongoing famine and disease.

“Kim Jong-Un’s power is built on the continued abuses inflicted on the North Korean people because he sits at the helm of a central government apparatus that uses public executions, extensive political prison camps, and brutal forced labor to maintain control,” Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director at Human Rights Watch, said in a recent report.

But not all countries have been critical of North Korea.

Indonesia and North Korea have maintained friendly ties for decades, according to the AFP. An early rapport was established between Kim Jong Un's late grandfather, Kim Il Sung, and Rachmawati's father, Sukarno, who served as president of Indonesia from 1945 to 1967.

Kim Il Sung, who died in 1994, was posthumously given the same award that is now going to his grandson, while Rachmawati holds an honorary chairwoman position on Pyongyang's Korean reunification preparation committee, according to United Press International. Rachmawati's sister, Megawati Sukarnoputri, is also a former president of Indonesia and leader of a major political party.

The Sukarno Education Foundation, also known as the Sukarno Centre, will give Kim Jong Un the award in September.

In 2013, Malaysia's privately run HELP University awarded Kim an honorary doctorate in economics despite the fact that his nation remains among the poorest in the world.

The odd couple: North Korea and Indonesia

“Misery,” wrote William Shakespeare, “acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.” Most pundits today would say it’s not misery but politics ― especially geopolitics ― that makes strange bedfellows. Almost invariably they would cite the strange case of North Korea and Indonesia.

There is indeed a huge difference between North Korea and Indonesia. One is l’enfant terrible of international affairs. The other is a global activist for democracy, an emerging economic power that would reform the world financial architecture. But there is undeniably a friendship between the two countries.

Thus the president of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Council of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Kim Yong-nam, paid an official visit to Jakarta recently. He came representing not only the living but also the dead: the Eternal President of North Korea is still officially its founder, Kim Il-sung, a great and close friend of Indonesia’s founding president, Sukarno. Popular legend has it that he is not dead. He merely hiked off to the hills to get some sleep.

Katingalahan bitaw ning Indonesians. (Sigi na lang ang North Koreans.) Hmm, di ba kaha ni sila biktima of some form of mutation, epekto sa inhalation of sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, etc. nga ilang na-inhale through generations from volcanic eruptions?
