Regarding that the Prosecutors' Disciplinary Committee of the Ministry of Justice issued a two-month suspension to the Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol in the early morning of today (16th), Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol said through a special attorney in the morning of the day, "Illegal and unjust measures put forward," he strongly refuted.
General Yoon made this statement in the statement delivered to the reporters through lawyer Lee Wan-kyu.
If President Moon Jae-in is re-approved after the request of Justice Minister Choo Mi-ae, the two-month suspension will take effect.
"The prosecution's political neutrality, independence, and rule of law have been seriously damaged," said General Yoon.
It is reported that Yoon responded to the special lawyers with the effect of "a somewhat predicted procedure."
Previously, President Yoon announced a legal response to the disciplinary committee, saying that he would consider whether the disciplinary action was reasonable as various violations were revealed.
In the near future, the legal conflict between President Yun and the Ministry of Justice is expected to continue as the request for suspension of execution for the two-month suspension of suspension is expected to lead to a main lawsuit.
