blind interview, he was hired as an executive of an agency affiliated with the Korea Meteorological Administration, and after that, reports came in that he was discriminated against and disadvantaged at work because of his background.

Mr. A, a former aide who lost his job after the United Future Party, a predecessor of the People's Strength, lost his job in the general election in April last year, got a job at the APEC Climate Center under the Korea Meteorological Administration after three months.

few months later, the Meteorological Administration, a higher organization, even requested a report on the movement within the National Assembly, says Mr. A.

[Democratic hwannowi between fact Adviser: Of course the ruling party who, if the aides go on the spot, you twenty thousand and one (the ruling origin) who facilitate the government and the ruling party consultation going on the spot eoulrijyo]

Mr. A is its adviser and meteorology officials He filed a complaint with the prosecution on charges of abuse of power.

[Kim Han-gyu / Former President of Seoul Bar Association: This is a very inappropriate event. (I wonder if it is within the scope of the aide's job authority, or whether this should be dealt with.]

Mr. A, who was complaining of extreme stress, was recently diagnosed with cancer and applied for a leave of absence from the company.
