Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol said on the 2nd, “Even under the Minister of Justice, let’s maintain and reinforce the capacity to investigate serious crimes by combining the prosecutor’s investigation and prosecution powers to create an anti-corruption investigation office, a financial investigation office, and a security office.” He conducted a telephone interview with the JoongAng Ilbo that day, along with former Minister of Justice Cho Kook and Chu Mi-ae, and key members of the Democratic Party’s provincial prosecutors made a reverse proposal to the Severe Crime Investigation Office (the Heavy Water Office), which is promoting the abolition of the prosecution’s direct investigation right .
與’檢 reverse proposal to complete deprivation of the right to investigate (complete inspection)
General Yoon said, “The so-called prosecutor’s office (complete deprivation of the prosecution’s right to investigate) is a retreat of history to return our society to the era of’political and economic relations’ symbolized by the presidential election funds.” It is to return to,” he clarified the opposite position.
Instead of ““You can remove all (prosecutors) from my bottom.” It is necessary to raise the national response capacity for major crimes by bringing them outside the jurisdiction to create a security office and integrate investigation and prosecution.“He said.
“I never thought it was a great position, whether it was the prosecutor’s office or the general general office.”
When asked why he made his stance before the Passport’s Heavy Water Administration bill was finalized on this day, Yoon said, “If the number of seats in the National Assembly is close to 180, will it not be passed?” and said, “The people are not indifferent, but directly connected to your interests. I thought it was a problem that I had to inform and persuade the people.”
In an interview with the media, he said, “I will bet 100 times the post of president in opposition to’Prosecutor’s Office”. “What’s great about the prosecutor general’s job. It’s important to do the job right (prosecutor). It’s important to do a good job in greetings,” he said. “I’m not going to close the case investigation by sending me a seat. I’ve never thought of it as a great position, whether it’s the prosecutor’s office or the president’s office,” he said.
A former high-ranking prosecution official, who served as the head of the great prosecutor’s office, said, “Yun’s reverse proposal is to ask whether the deprivation of the prosecution’s right to investigate the prosecution is in the interest of the people.” He interpreted it as making it clear that he was not opposed to the establishment of the heavy water office for the sake of the prosecution’s organizational egoism.”
“The deprivation of the prosecutor’s right to investigate is a return to the era of’absolute power'”
He said, “The deprivation of the prosecutor’s right to investigate means that the judicial police will eventually concentrate the right to investigate, and it warned against the damage of the weak and the common people when the fair society and market system collapses back to the era of’absolute corruption of absolute power’.” Added.
In an interview, General Yoon also cited two examples of financial corruption investigations in the past of the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office, and the investigation of political and economic relations. “Financial corruption investigations block moral hazards (moral hazards) to prevent financial insolvency. If left unchecked, savings banks and banks become insolvent, corporations go bankrupt, and tax, which is a public fund, prevents them.” And the small self-employed will lose money,” he explained.
General Yoon said, “The political relationship between high school alumni, businesswomen and politicians, does not get along with each other, but it refers to a crime committed through the association.” “As seen in the 2002 illegal presidential election fund investigation, if you give a lot of money to the ruling party candidate and then the opposition candidate hits you, “You have to give it more and match it after the election.” “Then, how will the National Tax Service, the Fair Trade Commission, and the Financial Services Commission properly investigate the corruption of the chaebol?” he asked.
“The issue of political and economic relations is not a matter of conservative, progressive, left and right,” he said. “It is a problem that makes each of us feel that we are being treated properly according to the law, against the privileged and weak relatives and individuals.”
Visiting Daegu on the 3rd… “Why can’t the president go to the local prosecutor’s office?”
He announced his opposition to the abolition of the prosecution’s right to investigate through the media on that day, and visits Daegu High School and District Prosecutors on the 3rd. Some pointed out that the passport was trying to mobilize conservatives due to the abolition of the prosecution’s right to investigate.
Regarding this, Yoon explained, “The only place among the national prosecutors’ offices that I did not go to is Daegu.” At the same time, he asked, “Why can’t (Park Beom-gye) go to the local prosecutor’s office when the Minister of Justice is also attending?”
Daegu is also a place with special meaning to President Yoon. In 2013, during the Park Geun-hye administration, during the 2013 National Intelligence Service comment case, President Yoon exposed’investigation external pressure’, and the following year, he worked as a Daegu high prosecutor through the’Replacement Personnel’.
