The inside of the police was noisy all day at the strong rebuke of the president for 'disturbing the national flag'.

The police command was silent, and the opposition from the front-line police has not subsided due to the controversy over police control by the Ministry of Public Administration and Security.

This is the report by Lee Seong-hoon.


The National Police Agency did not take an official position after the president's remarks strongly criticized the police in relation to the controversy over the overthrow of the appointment of the police chief.

Commissioner Kim Chang-ryong also declined to comment, saying, "I know that the HR department explained it to me."

The public security policy officer dispatched to the Ministry of Public Administration and Security sent one of several personnel plans by mistake, and it reaffirmed the existing position that the incident occurred due to insufficient communication between the presidential office, the Ministry of Public Administration and Security, and the National Police Agency.

Regarding the rumors of resignation, he said, "It is not appropriate to reveal a position," he said.

There are also complaints from the front lines that the president's rebuke is excessive.

An executive-level police officer of the National Police Agency said in a phone call with SBS, "It looks like they are asking the police chief to leave."

Why did the person in charge of the Ministry of Public Administration and Security send the wrong proposal in the first place?

In the midst of this, opposition to the recommendation of the Ministry of Public Administration and Security Advisory Committee continues.

The police at the general level and light level took part in a one-man demonstration for the first time, and the National Police Workers' Council also raised their voices of criticism.

[Public Government / National Police Workers' Association Solidarity Representative: Isn't it taming the police?

Aren't they trying to degenerate the police into the government's servants and use their power to regress the people to the past 31 years ago?] The Ministry of Public Administration and Security said that it

had already grasped the facts regarding the personnel reversal controversy and said that there were no further investigation plans.
