<Anchor> With the

death of Chun Doo-hwan, the defamation trial against the late Father Jovio is expected to end. In addition, the possibility of executing the recovery of the 90 billion won in fines that Jeon has not yet paid has become unclear.

Reporter Son Hyung-an reports.


Chun Doo-hwan was charged with defamation of lions by accusing the late Father Jobio of witnessing the May 18 helicopter shooting in his memoir in 2017 as an unscrupulous liar.

While undergoing trial at his home in Yeonhui-dong, Gwangju District Court, Jeon did not admit his mistake until the end.

[Fr. Cho Young-dae / late Father Jovio's nephew: Even his death is so condemned. Seeing him die like that, I am really angry because I am pitiful and I am really angry.]

Mr. Jeon was convicted in the first trial and is currently pending an appeals trial.

However, since the defendant, Mr. Jeon, has died, the trial is expected to conclude with a decision to dismiss the prosecution in accordance with the relevant laws.

However, a separate civil trial related to Mr. Jeon's memoir may continue in the form of succession to the parties.

In 1997, it became inevitable that Chun would be affected by the collection of fines, which was confirmed by the Supreme Court in 1997, along with life imprisonment on charges of civil rebellion and bribery.

About KRW 95.6 billion, or 43%, of the total fine of KRW 220.5 billion has not yet been recovered.

Under this circumstance, the procedure for enforcing fines on Jeon's property became impossible.

Prosecutors said that they are reviewing the relevant legal principles to determine whether to recover the borrowed-name property, etc., transferred by Jeon to a third party.

In addition, the local tax that Mr. Jeon owes to Seoul is 982 million won, and the city of Seoul plans to sell expensive items seized during the search and seizure process of Mr. Jeon's home in 2018.
