The National Human Rights Commission of Korea has launched an investigation into the allegation of the bereaved family of a murdered West Sea public official who was conciliated by Rep. Hwang Hee and Kim Cheol-min of the Democratic Party of Korea.

Earlier, Lee Rae-jin, a bereaved of a murdered public official, claimed that he had received conciliation from Democratic Party lawmakers Hwang-hee and Kim Cheol-min to 'accept North Korea and receive compensation', and the two lawmakers objected, saying it was not true.

The Human Rights Commission is planning to start investigating the statements of the Democratic Party lawmakers who are complaining.
