Former Democratic Research Institute Chairman Yang Jeong-cheol met with Democratic Party leader Lee Nak-yeon and denied media reports that he proposed the amnesty of former Presidents Lee Myung-bak and Park Geun-hye.

Representative Lee said in the statement of the party's spokesman, "I've met Mr. Yang, but I haven't talked about that specific.

Earlier, an internet media reported that Yang Jeon raised the issue of amnesty to Lee several times, including meetings in mid-November last year.
