US alleges North Korea misused UN aid

According to the story available here, the United States has accused North Korea of misallocating United Nations Development Program financial aid. Specifically, the charges are that instead of using the funds for the benefit of the people, the government bought nearly $3m worth of land and housing in Britain, France, and Canada. The US also claims that North Korea purchased equipment that could be used for military purposes.

With the UN Aid, are there specific things that North Korea has to use it for, or can North Korea use the aid for whatever they want? Also does the UN have the right to check up on where the aid is going?
