When Supreme Court Chief Kim Myung-soo interviewed the head of the Busan High Court, Im Seong-geun, who submitted his resignation for health reasons in May last year, when he revealed that he had never said anything related to the impeachment of the judge, the chief judge Im countered it.
“If Supreme Court Justice Kim said,’If the resignation is accepted, the National Assembly will not be able to discuss impeachment, it can be criticized.” Seems to be.
Deputy Judge Lim on the 3rd at 2:47 pm, through attorney Yoon Geun-soo, revealed the data entitled’Position on the presentation of the Supreme Court’ Attorney Yoon said, “Judge Im was in poor health due to gallbladder resection, kidney failure, etc., so he submitted his resignation to the deputy chief of the court administration on May 22 last year, just before he interviewed Chief Justice.” ” In addition, lawyer Yoon said, “At the time, Supreme Court Chief Kim’I understand that Deputy Judge Im submits his resignation. However, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court must also consider a number of political situations. Acceptance of the resignation could lead to criticism as it would prevent the National Assembly from discussing impeachment. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court will decide whether to accept the resignation.’ It also emphasized that the Supreme Court holds the resignation of Lim.
Prior to this, the Supreme Court explained exactly the opposite of Judge Lim’s position around 1 pm on the 3rd. The Supreme Court said, “The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court told Judge Lim that he wanted to focus on treatment and think about personal problems after watching his health in the future.” I have never done it.” In addition, he also said, “Judge Im did not formally submit his resignation.” Judge Lim was acquitted of the charges of abuse of the judicial administration authority at the first trial in February last year, and the disciplinary procedure was ended with reprimand. If the resignation submitted in May last year is accepted, it cannot be subject to impeachment by the National Assembly because it is not a judge. Members of the People’s Power of the Legislative Judicial Committee urged Chief Justice Kim to resign, saying, “The Chief Justice, who must protect the independence of the judiciary, has crossed the impeachment prosecution and is actively lying about what is unfavorable. Lee Tan-hee, a former judge, Lee Su-jin, Choi Ki-sang, and other Democratic Party lawmakers proposed an impeachment prosecution against Judge Im on the 1st, and they are scheduled to vote at a plenary session of the National Assembly on the 4th.
