December 25th According to Yonhap News Agency, on the 25th, South Korean President Moon Jae-in apologized to the citizens for the suspension of the Attorney General’s suspension.
On December 7 this year, Moon Jae-in apologized to the citizens for the intensification of the contradictions in the legal inspection.
Moon Jae-in said, “I apologize for the inconvenience and chaos caused to the people. As a person in power, I apologize here.
Respect the court’s decision and hope it will be an opportunity for prosecutors to reflect on it.” He also asked the Ministry of Justice and the procuratorial organs to smoothly promote the follow-up measures of procuratorial reform through stable cooperation.
South Korea’s procuratorial organs have been criticized for their excessive power. After Moon Jae-in took office, he vigorously promoted the radical reform of the procuratorial organ.
Against this background, on November 24 this year, the Minister of Justice Qiu Meiai ordered Attorney General Yin Xiyue to suspend his post, only to trigger collective protests by prosecutors at all levels across the country on an unprecedented scale. After Yin Xiyue filed an administrative lawsuit, his suspension order was revoked.
Since then, the “fighting method” between Qiu Meiai and Yin Xiyue has continued to upgrade. On December 16, Qiu Mei’ai asked for a two-month suspension of Yin Xiyue, and obtained Moon Jae-in’s approval. Qiu Mei-ai also asked Moon Jae-in to resign.
Outsiders predicted that the “fighting law” could come to an end. However, on December 24, South Korean courts suspended their duties, and Yoon Seok-yue immediately returned to work. The contradictions in the legal inspection once again attracted public attention.
