Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (March 31, 2016)
1. National Human Rights Commission of Korea said that police’s decision to disapprove the Sewol ferry disaster memorial service violates the Constitution, which guarantees the freedom of assembly. The commission held a Committee of the Whole Meeting and quoted civic group’s petition regarding police’s disapproval of the service near ChungWaDae.
I am not sure whether Korean police is aware of the value of the Constitution. I hope they don’t rule over above the Constitution.
2. Bank customers are concerned about low-interest rates, which extend over a longer period. While interest rates for savings and term deposits plunge, loan interests steadily increase coupled with rising additional service charges.
Instead of stealing the customers’ money, why don’t they do something about their far-fetched employee benefits package?
