Two years ago, the family of a public official who was shot and killed by the North Korean military was investigated by the prosecution as the accuser.

The family claimed that at the time of the incident, some Democrats conciliated as if they would compensate them if they admitted that they had crossed the north on their own.

On September 29, 2020, a week after the assassination.

Four people, including a member of the Democratic Party, visited the Ansan office of the bereaved family member Rae-jin after a foreign press conference.

It was a place to comfort the bereaved family who lost their family to the North Korean military, and Lee claimed that Democratic lawmakers tried to convince them by reminding them that Wando, Jeollanam-do was their hometown.

Rep. Hwang-hee and Kim Cheol-min, who were designated as parties to the conciliation, denied that they were not conciliatory, only discussing ways to help the bereaved.

The bereaved family burst into anger saying that they drove them to North Korea with only fragmentary North Korean military recordings.

President Yoon said he was ashamed and sorry that the country inflicted an indelible wound even though efforts to uncover the truth have made progress.

After completing regular personnel appointments, the prosecution is expected to start a full-scale investigation, starting with the investigation of the accuser of the bereaved family.
