Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (April 4, 2017)
1. As the Ministry of Ocean and Fisheries refused to allow the bereaved family members of Sewol ferry victims to stay in the container in Mokpo Port, the families currently live on the street four days in a row. The ministry’s comments on the family members caused controversy as it said the families were in Mokpo to monitor the salvage operation.
The ministry who had not gained trust from the family members in the last three years should not say such things.
2. Police summoned Chung Kwang-yong, the president of Parksamo (Supporters of Park Geun-hye) for the third time as he refused to appear to the police station. Police notified Chung to report the police next Monday (April 10) at 10 am. If Chung refuses, police consider that it will issue a warrant for Chung’s arrest.
Who is he to report to the police after the presidential election? Your Highness is in the detention center.
