Q. The disciplinary committee is finally postponed...

Why did you change the position of the Ministry of Justice?

[Reporter Lim Chan-jong: In the end, it seems that the disciplinary committee held tomorrow is illegal, and it seems that it has not been able to overcome the logic of President Yoon Suk-yeol.

The prosecution and disciplinary law states that the Criminal Procedure Act applies mutatis mutandis to the designation of deadlines and the service of subpoenas.According to the Criminal Procedure Act, even when the first deadline is rescheduled, it is interpreted that the party must afford five days from the time of receiving the subpoena.

It was yesterday that General Yoon received the summons, so it is illegal to open the disciplinary committee tomorrow.

It seems that the date was set again on the 10th because of this controversy.

General Yoon will receive this subpoena tomorrow, that is, only in the afternoon of December 4th. Given the five days of spare time, the earliest time to hold the disciplinary committee is the 10th.

Also, the Ministry of Justice said it would allow the interrogation of witnesses at the disciplinary committee.

It may be a policy to reduce procedural controversy, but it is doubtful that the procedural controversy will be resolved as the supervisory committee of the Ministry of Justice initially pointed out that there is a serious flaw in the disciplinary claim process itself, which is a stage before the disciplinary committee.]

Q. A week until the disciplinary committee…

What is the remaining period variable?

[Reporter Lim Chan-jong: As the remaining period increased, there are now many variables.

The first is the examination of an arrest warrant to be held tomorrow for officials of the Ministry of Industry related to the nuclear power plant shutdown case.

The Democratic Party claimed that it was a political investigator and abuse of the prosecution's power as President Yoon Seok-yeol returned to office, so if a warrant is issued tomorrow, it could be interpreted that the legitimacy of the investigation was largely clarified.

On the other hand, if it is dismissed, the claim that it is an unreasonable investigation will gain strength.

The second variable is the national judges' meeting scheduled for the 7th.

Some judges discussed the allegations of the so-called judge inspection, which is the reason for the disciplinary action of President Yoon Seok-yeol, and suggested that they decide whether to take a position after discussing the allegations at the judge's delegation.

If a critical position is decided after discussion at a meeting, it is possible that it will affect the disciplinary committee of President Yoon Suk-yeol, which will be held three days later.

However, there are opinions about whether it is appropriate for judges to give a group opinion in a situation where related lawsuits are expected, and whether it is raising controversy in the face of suspicion that some judges have requested their position in the circumstances, so it remains to be seen what conclusions will come.
