The Supreme Court has issued a formal stance that it should not take a bill that entrusts a special court to a trial of suspects in the judicial farm. It is hard to accept because there is no grounds for the Constitution and it is infringing on the independence of the judiciary.

The Supreme Court has issued a formal stance that it should not take a bill that entrusts a special court to a trial of suspects in the judicial farm. It is hard to accept because there is no grounds for the Constitution and it is infringing on the independence of the judiciary.

I am a reporter.

In June, after the prosecutor's investigation into the suspicion of 'Justice Farmers' by the Justice Department of Yung Sung-tae began, the court dismissed the warrant for seizure of nearly 90 percent of the court case with unprecedented reasons.

I was worried that I would be looking at judicial farmers' trials.

So, in August, 56 Democratic Party lawmakers Park Chung Min and others initiated a bill to introduce a special court to handle the case.

The Democratic Party plans to appoint three members of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, when nine nominees nominated by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court nominate six candidates for special judges.

In response, the Supreme Court made a clear statement in a 10-page statement to the National Assembly that the Special Tribunal "has no basis in the Constitution."

First, it is unconstitutional and it may be viewed as an infringement of the independence of the judiciary, as the non-judicial institutions such as the National Assembly and the Korean Bar Association intervene in the process of establishing a special judge.

I hear that even if a special court is enforced, the judge will be suspended for a while if the defendants are asked to judge the Constitutional Court as unconstitutional.

The Supreme Court has argued that the current court system, like re-allocating the court in case of fairness, can solve the problem.
