During the trial of <Anchor>
, former Seoul public official Yoo Woo-seong, who was falsely accused of being a spy with evidence fabricated by the National Intelligence Service, appeared at the Airlift Service as a accuser against a high-ranking prosecutor.
The Ministry of Public Relations started a full-scale investigation into the prosecution, which did not even apologize even after a court ruling that the prosecution had abused the prosecution authority.

Yoo Woo-seong, a former Seoul civil servant, was charged with handing over the list of 200 North Korean defectors to North Korea in 2013.
Following the acquittal in the first trial, the NIS was found to have falsified evidence in the appeals court, and the charges were lifted.
Two prosecutors who neglected to verify evidence received severe punishment, and at the same time, the prosecution brought up other charges against Yoo.
It is a re-investigation of the charges of illegal remittance to North Korea, which had already been suspended four years ago, and handed over to trial.
The first trial sentenced him to be guilty, but the second trial dismissed the charge, saying that the prosecution had abused the prosecution's right to prosecute, and the Supreme Court confirmed the same.
Even though the Supreme Court acknowledged the prosecution's abuse of the prosecution's right to prosecute, the prosecution did not apologize,

Do you have no intention of apologizing?]
[Lee Du-bong/Chief of Incheon District Prosecutors' Office (last year): We will be careful with our business processes.]
In the end, Mr. Yoo sued the then-deputy chief prosecutor, Lee Du-bong, to the Public Air Service for abuse of power.
Yoo strongly criticized Lee Si-won, a former prosecutor who was disciplined for being accused of espionage, as a secretary for public service discipline at the Blue House, and that Prosecutor Lee Du-bong, who indicted him for retaliation, was even mentioned as a candidate for president.

We plan to launch an investigation into it.
