you may have heard, Minister Choo Mi-ae explained several reasons why he requested disciplinary action, claiming that Yoon Seok-yeol improperly met with the media owner and interfered with the inspection.
Most of the things have been known so far, but it was the first time today (24th) that Yun had illegally inspected the court in charge of the case involving the Ulsan mayoral election and the case related to former Minister Cho Kook.
Reporter Chan-jong Lim delivers the specific charges of disciplinary action made by Minister Chu and President Yoon's objection to it.
Justice Minister Choo Mi-ae argued that Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol was charged with eight major disciplinary charges.
Among them, one new allegation that Minister Chu has not publicly mentioned is one of the allegations of illegal investigation by the court.
Choo argued that the prosecution was responsible for the investigation of the court in charge of trials in cases involving the former Minister Cho Kook and alleged involvement in the Blue House in the Ulsan mayoral election.
It is said that the Supreme Prosecutor's Office of the Supreme Prosecutor's Office of Investigation and Information Policy prepared and shared with the Supreme Prosecutor's Office of Anti-Corruption the contents of the judgments of the judges in major political cases, whether they joined the Korean Law Research Association, and public evaluation.
[Chu Mi-ae/Minister of Justice: He violated his duties, such as collecting and using personal information and propensity data of judges that could not be collected by the Office of the Investigation Information Policy Office.] In
response to this, President Yoon said, the propensity of the court in charge of major cases, etc. It claimed that the report that analyzed it had been commonly shared within the prosecution.
He also refuted how it could be an illegal inspection by collecting information disclosed on the Internet and what he heard from prosecutors who participated in the judge's trial and referencing it in the trial.
Minister Choo Mi-ae also considered the meeting between President Seok-yeol Yoon and media owners, which had been controversial in the audit of the state administration, only by contacting Chairman Hong Seok-hyun, the real key owner of JTBC, around November 2018.
At the time, Chairman Hong claimed that it was inappropriate contact because he was a victim of a tablet PC-related defamation case prosecuted by the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office.
Regarding this, President Yoon said that he went out to a place called by an acquaintance without prior appointment, met with several people, and that there was no discussion on the case.
