Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (September 23, 2016)
1. The South Korean government did not provide legal support to women who were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese army in the past three years. The government did not use allocated budgets for the victims, which provides legal consultation and litigation representation about defamation and compensation of comfort women.
South Korea’s Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-hwan said, “Many victims believe that every cloud has a silver lining.” Well, they will say, “Touch Luck.”
2. Army executives officers allegedly received lobby funds of hundreds of thousands of Korean won from the Red Cross in South Korea in return for a blood donation of individual soldiers. The officers have received goods of approximately 454,580,000 Korean won including dining vouchers, movie tickets, and golf balls in exchange for other soldiers’ blood.
To what extent do we have to trust these blood-suckers? Jesus says, “You will pay me the price of blood.”
3. A doctor may be suspended from medical practice for 12 months from one month because of their unethical conducts such as reusing syringes. In addition, there were newly established regulations that nurse assistants have to renew their license every three years to improve their medical performance and receive continuous professional education every year.
Is a doctor suspended from practice for only one year when some people suffer from hepatitis for many years because of contaminated syringes? Are you kidding me?
