According to Yonhap News Agency, according to a number of relevant parties in South Korea’s ruling party on the 30th, President Moon Jae-in and State Premier Chung Sye-kyun exchanged views on the intensification of the contradiction between Legal Minister Qiu Mei-ai and Attorney General Yoon Seok-yue when they held a regular meeting in Qingwatai on the same day.
Chung Sye-kyun said at the meeting that Yin Xiyue’s punishment problem brought a heavy burden to the operation of state affairs, and Yin Xiyue’s inability to perform his duties was attributed to himself, so he voluntarily asked to resign.
Chung Sye-kyun also criticized the continuous collective actions within the procuratorial organ, which is an misconduct of public officials who neglect their duties regardless of the reason.
Although Chung Sye-kyun did not directly talk about Qiu Meiai’s whereabouts, the analysis believes that the speech of “posing a burden on the operation of national government” means that the matter should be concluded, and Qiu Meiai also needs to leave.
It is not clear what position Moon Jae-in has on this. However, it is reported that he said at the meeting that he was very distressed about this issue and reached a consensus with Chung Sye-kyun that the intensification of the contradictions in the legal inspection will impose a heavy burden on the operation of the state government.
