There is a controversy among the prosecutors these days over whether Prosecutor Lim Eun-jung has the right to investigate.
Prosecutor Lim Eun-jung claims that Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol has excluded him from his duties, but reporter Bae Jun-woo will provide more details.
Prosecutor Eun-jung Lim made his argument by posting 4 posts on social
yesterday (2nd) and today.
Last month, he was given the right to investigate as a member of the Ministry of Justice.
Prosecutor Lim has publicly revealed his willingness to investigate the case of a perjury teacher related to the trial of former Prime Minister Han Myung-sook.
The Great Swordsman Spokesman's Office immediately opposed this.
Since Prosecutor Lim didn't have the right to investigate from the beginning, he was never excluded from the investigation of a specific case.
Then, this time, the Supreme Prosecutor's Office Chief Han Dong-soo refuted it.
A manager wrote a statement stating that he had appointed Prosecutor Eun-jung Lim as the chief prosecutor, and Prosecutor Lim also revealed this through social media.
During the two days, prosecutor Lim, the spokesperson's office, and the prosecutor's office were joined in a truth battle and criticized each other.
It is interpreted that the fact that Prosecutor Lim, who belongs to the prosecutor's office, continues to make a provocative remark through social media, shows that he will surely carry out the investigation of the imminent statute of perjury teacher suspicion.
On the other hand, it is said that the head of the great swordsman, who has been crushed in shape and is unwilling to conflict with the prosecutor belonging to it, has a biased view of the prosecutor Lim, so it is said that it is not desirable to entrust the investigation.
