Former National Police Commissioner Kim Chang-ryong, who expressed his resignation in protest against the Ministry of Public Administration and Security’s push for police control, leaves the police without a resignation ceremony. In a post on his Facebook page on the 6th, former Commissioner Kim said, “I couldn’t stand in front of his fellow juniors because of his helplessness, self-blame, shame and wretchedness.”
In this article, former Commissioner Kim said, “If you add 34 years, 3 months and 6 days, and 4 years and 2 months of the National Police Academy, more than 38 years… It is the life and path of a police officer who has walked silently, imagining that he is holding a retirement ceremony with the blessings of his family and colleagues whenever it is difficult or difficult,” he said. Commissioner Kim told reporters at the National Police Agency, “It is difficult to hold a retirement ceremony.”
On the 27th of last month, former Commissioner Kim expressed his opposition to the establishment of a police station within the Ministry of Public Administration and Security, and expressed his resignation with the intention of taking responsibility as the head of internal opposition within the police. Earlier, as President Yoon Seok-yeol denounced the controversy over the announcement of overturning the appointment of the police chief of police for “disrupting the national flag,” pressures from inside and outside the police to resign also increased. On the 5th of this month, as President Yoon approved the resignation proposal proposed by Minister of Public Administration and Security Lee Sang-min, former Commissioner Kim could not fulfill his original term until the 23rd and had to take off his uniform.
