private gatherings with more than 5 people were banned, it was revealed that more than 30 young businessmen had a social gathering and had a secret gang.
However, the quarantine authorities who were notified at the time and dispatched to the field were not properly fined for negligence.
This is the exclusive report by KBC reporter Junho Lee.
A man and woman in black suits sat together in a room on the second floor of a large restaurant.
About 30 people attended.
Six times as many people gathered as the ban on groups of 5 or more.
As if conscious of the outside gaze, the windows were covered, but food and alcohol continued to enter.
These are members of the JCI Namgwangju Youth Chamber, who had a run on the 26th of last month when vaccination began.
On the same day, a general assembly meeting continued to a dinner party.
Restaurants with groups of 5 or more are run by members of the group.
The Gwangju Buk-gu Office, the district office having jurisdiction, imposed fines only for restaurants even after receiving notifications from residents and dispatching them to the site, and not fines for members during dinners.
After raising the question of the poor crackdown, the participants of the dinner party were investigated again. This time, only 8 out of 30 people were caught.
[Covered officials: (Aren't it thirty people?) Even if there are thirty people in here, we can’t find it.
If it's not your party, you can't.]
The group's chairman explained that he had no control over the members' voluntary gathering.
[President of JCI Namgwangju Youth Chamber: In a way, it's an informal meeting.
If you say (you shouldn't get together) there a few times, you hurt each other (feelings) and fight.]
Gwangju Buk-gu Office announced that it would belatedly re-investigate when the full-scale coverage began.
