Yonhap News Agency on December 25, South Korea’s Blue Watai spokesman Kang Min-suk said at a press conference on the 25th that President Moon Jae-in said that he respected the court’s decision and apologized for the inconvenience and confusion caused to the citizens as the suspension of Attorney General Yoon Seok-yue.
Moon Jae-in expressed the hope that the procuratorial organs would take this opportunity to reflect on the impartial exercise of prosecutorial power. The Ministry of Justice and the prosecution should maintain stable cooperation and adhere to the follow-up measures to promote procuratorial reform.
On the 24th, the Administrative Division 12th of the Seoul Administrative Court partially accepted Yoon Seok-yue’s application against the Minister of Justice, Qiu Mei-ai, to suspend the suspension of duty. As a result, Yin Xiyue was able to resume his post after eight days of suspension.
