Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (March 29, 2017)
1. Prosecutors described the relationship between former President Park Geun-hye and Choi Soon-sil in an arrest warrant in detail. They also accepted special prosecutor’s comments on the intimate relationship between Park and Choi that shares economic gain.
That is why both Park and Choi should eat a free meal in jail.
2. South Korea’s National Assembly convened a plenary session and selected five people to become part of a committee investigating the body of the salvaged Sewol ferry recommended by four major and opposition parties. The five people will work together for up to ten months with three people recommended by the bereaved families. The three figures are Kong Kil-young, a professor, Kwon Young-bin, a lawyer, and Lee Dong-kwon, an expert of shipbuilding.
I am not certain whether conservative parties like Liberal Party of Korea and Barun Party are eligible to recommend a committee member. They are interrupters.
