The agenda to create a personnel information management team under the Ministry of Justice and entrust the verification of public officials passed the Cabinet meeting on the 31st. In a situation where the controversy over the overconfidence of the Ministry of Justice’s authority continues, the Yoon Seok-yeol administration has dealt with the related enforcement ordinances, and the launch of the personnel information management group is imminent. The opposition protested against Justice Minister Han Dong-hoon as “the birth of unruly power”.

The government held a cabinet meeting at the government complex in Sejong, presided over by Prime Minister Han Deok-soo on the same day, and proposed ‘a partial amendment to the regulations on the collection and management of information on candidates for public office, etc.’ decided

As the Office of the Chief Civil Affairs Officer of the Blue House, which was in charge of verifying public officials, was abolished, the function was entrusted to the HR Information Management Team of the Ministry of Justice. The personnel information management team consists of 20 people including the head. A maximum of 4 people can participate.

The establishment of the personnel information management team is part of the reorganization of the personnel verification system that President Yoon had envisioned. President Yoon has promised to abolish the chief civil affairs office since his days as a presidential candidate. He announced that he would transfer the personnel verification function to the Ministry of Justice and the police.

On the way to the presidential office in Yongsan on the 27th, President Yoon said, “The office of the presidential secretary should mainly focus on policies, not digging out the backs of people.”

With the personnel information management team under the Ministry of Justice, concerns are raised about the concentration of authority in the Ministry of Justice. The Ministry of Justice, which controls the prosecution, will have all powers from personnel information and verification to investigation and prosecution. This is particularly concerning in that the head of the Ministry of Justice is Minister Han Dong-hoon, who is considered one of President Yoon’s closest aides. The independence of the personnel information management team is emphasized by appointing a former non-prosecutor to the director and reporting only the results to the minister, but there is still the view that it can be free from the influence of one minister. Minister Han said the day before with the intent of “a meaningful progress in the transition from a secret and secret work in the personnel verification area to a work that is normally monitored.”

Criticism is also raised against the establishment of a new establishment through a swift resolution through the revision of the enforcement ordinance. There were criticisms from the beginning that the establishment of the personnel information management group was illegal, but President Yoon pushed ahead with the revision of the Presidential Decree. From the notice of the legislation on the 24th to the resolution of the State Council on that day, it took place in a matter of a week. As soon as the publication of the Presidential Decree in the Official Gazette is made on the 7th, the personnel information management team will be activated.

The opposition is protesting. Yun Ho-joong, chairman of the Joint Emergency Response Committee of the Democratic Party of Korea, appeared on KBS radio and said, “The powers of such people as Jang Se-dong, Cha Ji-cheol, and Kim Hyung-wook during the military regime could be combined to create an undisputed power.” Chairman Yoon said at a rally in front of the government complex in Sejong, “We will proceed with the amendment of the enforcement ordinance to the Constitutional Court for unconstitutionality, lawsuits, and rights disputes.” Lee Su-jin, spokesperson for the election committee, said, “The resolution of the State Council meeting of the personnel information management group is a milestone for the completion of the ‘Prosecutor’s Republic’.

Lee Dong-young, senior spokesperson for the Justice Party’s election committee, said, “It is absurd to entrust the personnel verification agency to the Minister of Justice, who does not have the authority to verify personnel.
