Representative Yoon Geon-young, a member of the Democratic Party of Korea, strongly opposed President Yoon Seok-yeol’s suggestion to find out the truth of the 2019 North Korean defector’s forced repatriation to North Korea case, saying, “Are you talking about protecting the bizarre killer?”
Rep. Yoon Geon-young, through his SNS today, said, “The Yoon Seok-yeol government used the shooting of a public official in the West Sea as a tool for a political offensive without any basis, and the second episode of the heinous crime of North Korean fishermen who killed 16 innocent colleagues was brought out.” claimed.
Rep. Yoon emphasized, “Why the sudden repatriation incident after a month in power? What they have in common is North Korea.”
“First of all, I need to be clear. Two North Korean fishermen who were repatriated to North Korea are criminals who murdered 16 innocent colleagues.”
“President Yoon Seok-yeol seems to think that even if he has committed a heinous crime, he should receive legal protection,” he said.
Moreover, there is no way to punish them if those two reverse their statements about their criminal acts in a Korean court.”
Prior to this, President Yoon met with reporters on the way to the presidential office yesterday and talked about the forced repatriation of North Korean fishermen to North Korea, saying, “Once they enter the country, they are considered Korean citizens according to our constitution. I’ve done a lot, but I think I’m looking into it once.”
