[Hwang Song-hwan / Prison Facility Victim: This and this one is also right and has no teeth.]

[Kim Se-Geun / Prison Facility Victim: Well, 'Ferry boat' and 'Hiroshima' such spirits are indescribable.

can't forget

I still have that nightmare while sleeping.]

[Hwang Song-hwan / Prisoner Victim: Those people, not people.

The devil is the devil.]

[Kim Se-geun / Concentration facility victim: There is a body warehouse with a blue gate.

Then, when you die, roll up one or two military blankets and take them there... Five or six a week. Corpses.

I see it in person, right?]

Two people talking about similar experiences when they were living in the Seoul Children's Shelter more than 50 years ago.

The scars from that time are still clear on my head, and even now, it is difficult to sustain life without taking medications for panic disorder and claustrophobia.

The more you hate to recall, the more vivid your memories.

[Kim Se-geun / Detention facility victim: (due to child sexual assault) The anus is torn.

During the day, I even dragged it to the mountains.

A person called 'a bucket straw'.

That person was really bad.]

For the first time, the results of a government service study on the conditions of group accommodations across the country came out.

The primary study subjects were 11 accommodation facilities in Seoul, Gyeonggi, Incheon, and Gangwon.

Through internal records of various facilities and interviews with prisoners and workers, the research team concluded that human rights violations existed in all detention facilities, both public and private, throughout the entire stages of admission and detention.

In some facilities, the proportion of those who came through police crackdowns with family members or other related people exceeded 80-90%.

It means that they were not accommodated to protect orphans or people with nowhere to go, but at stations, bus stops, and plazas, the lower classes of the city were defined as so-called 'vagrants' and cracked down at random.

[Kim Jae-hyung / Professor, Department of Culture and Liberal Arts, Korea National Open University: People who deserve moral punishment were also caught indiscriminately

and put in a facility.]


For example, in 1983-4, 91 men with an average age of 38 from the Busan Brothers Welfare Center moved to Samyeongwon, Incheon, and returned to the Brothers Welfare Center 90 to 200 days later.

It was mobilized for the construction of the Samyoungwon building, which was just before getting permission for the facility.

In the background, it was confirmed that there was a government guideline to reduce construction costs by using resident labor to expand accommodation facilities nationwide.

The research team concludes that because the state used the collective detention facilities as a monitoring and control network for the urban lower class and minorities, it was a structure in which human rights violations were inevitable in all detention facilities.

[ Kim

Jae-hyung / Professor, Department of Cultural Liberal Arts, Korea National Open University: I think it can be said that the state and facilities did not have any will or program to return them to society.]

As such, ex officio investigations by government agencies and discussions on compensation and compensation have emerged as tasks.
