Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol resigned yesterday (4th).
In recent years, a strong voice was opposed to promoting legislation that deprives the prosecution of all the prosecution's right to investigate the passport.
He stated the reason for his resignation, saying that his role in the prosecution seems to have ended in a situation where justice and the rule of law were destroyed by such an attempt.
Reporter Son Hyung-an reports.
Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol, who appeared in front of the front door of the Supreme Prosecutors' Office, without hesitation, revealed the reason for the resignation.
[Suk-Yeol Yoon/Prosecutor General: It is difficult for me to see the common sense and justice that our society has built up over the years collapse anymore.
My role in the prosecution is now and now (here).]
Criticism continued on the day aimed at promoting the Severe Crime Investigation Office of the passport.
[Suk-Yeol Yoon/Prosecutor General: The constitutional spirit and the rule of law system that have supported this country are being destroyed.
The damage will only go to the people.]
At the same time, he made it clear that he would find his role outside the prosecution.
[Suk-Yeol Yoon/Prosecutor General: I will continue to do my best to protect liberal democracy and the people no matter where I am.]
Earlier this year, when he heard that he is the prosecutor general of the Moon Jae-in administration, Mr. Yoon will fill all the remaining terms of office. Observation was dominant.
However, it is analyzed that the wave of sadness of Min Jeong-soo Shin, who became the mediator of the prosecution's conflict, and the proposal to promote the heavy water office in the passport, added the feeling of helplessness to President Yoon, and that it was the final blow that confirmed the decision to resign.
From that time on, President Yoon continued the public opinion war, and in Daegu, he was seen as a politician as he continued his remarks.
Yoon did not immediately answer the question of whether he would do politics, but the prospect of finding a role in politics is dominant.
