Charges against Prime Minister Han Deok-soo and Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon have been filed?

[기자]

Around 1 pm today, a civic group charged 16 people, focusing on the so-called ‘top line’.

The disaster is said to have been caused by their negligence in their duty to protect the lives of the people.

Let’s hear it for ourselves.

Prime Minister Han Deok-soo, head of the Central Security and Disaster Countermeasures Headquarters, and Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon, head of the Security Management Committee of the Seoul Metropolitan Government, were charged.

There were high-ranking officials in charge of security-related tasks at the Ministry of Public Administration and Security and Seoul and Yongsan-gu, as well as Police Commissioner Yoon Hee-geun and Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency Commissioner Kim Gwang-ho, also included in the complaint.

As most of them are subject to notification by the air carrier, the special version will deal with the case according to the general charge case procedure after notification.

The special issue plans to call the case of Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency Commissioner Kim Gwang-ho, who has already completed cell phone forensics, as soon as possible.

In addition, Park Seong-min, the former head of the information department of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency and the former information manager of the Yongsan Police Station, who has already been summoned once, will be summoned again.

The former head of the 112 situation of Yongsan Police Station, who was investigated two days in a row until yesterday, also plans to call again next week for an investigation.

The special version called Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency situation room officers as suspects?

[기자]

As of 10 am, Superintendent Ryu Mi-jin, who was the situation manager on the day of the disaster, is under investigation for the second suspect.

A week has passed since he was recalled, but Superintendent Liu went in for an investigation without answering reporters’ questions.

Let’s hear it for ourselves.

[류미진 / 전 서울경찰청 인사교육과장 : (오늘 2차 조사받으러 오셨는데 한 말씀 좀 부탁합니다.) …. (지난 조사 때 어떤 부분 위주로 소명하셨나요?) …. (직무유기 혐의는 인정하시나요?) ….]

Superintendent Ryu was the situation manager on the day of the disaster, but it was investigated that he was working in his office from the morning, not the situation room.

In the end, I only received a report from the situation room staff after 1 hour and 20 minutes after the disaster, and 20 minutes later I reported to Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency Commissioner Kim Gwang-ho.

This is why you will be charged with dereliction of duty.

The head of Situation Team 3 of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, who deferred reporting to Superintendent Ryu at the time, was also present at today’s investigation.

He is considered to have had an effect on increasing the damage of the disaster, and is charged with manslaughter.

In today’s investigation, the special edition will hear a comprehensive statement about not only the charges against Superintendent Liu himself, but also how the omission of the report by the head of Situation Team 3 affected the disaster.

He explained that he could not confirm whether he should cross-examine or not, and that the only thing to do was that the schedules overlapped.
