Child sex offender Cho Doo-soon will be released this December.
As the date approaches, people's anxiety is also growing. Today (18th), the 8 o'clock news will focus on how to manage Cho Doo-soon when he is released, and what to prepare before that.
First of all, today the Ministry of Justice, the police, and members of the National Assembly gathered to discuss measures after Cho Doo-soon was released.
We decided to track the location for 24 hours and increase the number of patrols, and in addition, we decided to push ahead with measures to limit the movement of Jo Doo-soon at a specific time or place.
The first news is Yun Nara.
Mayor of Ansan, all members of the Ansan City Assembly, the Vice Minister of Justice and the Gyeonggi South Police Commissioner gathered today in Ansan City, Gyeonggi-do.
This is a meeting to discuss countermeasures against Cho Doo-soon, who was sentenced to 12 years in prison for sexual assault on a child in 2008 in a shopping district in Ansan and released due to the expiration of his sentence in December.
The Ministry of Justice announced that it will appoint a dedicated probation officer and establish a 24-hour location tracking policy, and the police will operate five police officers as a dedicated TF and strengthen patrols during late-night and school hours.

Here, a plan to newly apply the'post-release matters' was also discussed.
Observations include measures such as prohibiting going out at certain times of the day, restricting access to certain places, restricting access to certain people, and restricting drinking alcohol.
These requirements can only be applied when the court issued the judgment on attaching an electronic anklet.
However, at the time of the 2009 ruling, no such requirements were imposed.
For this reason, there are some counterarguments that imposing new compliance matters on Cho Doo-soon violates the principle of fluoride punishment.
However, lawmakers in the Ansan region said, "There is also a law provision that can impose compliance matters if there is a change in circumstances, so we will find a solution."
