Why the Trial is Not Progressing Despite the Arrests of 15 People

Behind the string of arrests of the ruling party’s members is the agenda of the opposition party, which won the presidential election. Yun Sung-yeol, who will become president in May, has been intensifying his offensive against the ruling party. The main target is the current president, Moon Jae-in. Kim Hyun, the Tokyo bureau chief of the Daehan Financial Daily, said, “Moon Jae-in has the potential to be a major force in the Ulsan region, but he is not a leader of the ruling party.

Moon Jae-in is under suspicion of fraud in the Ulsan mayoral election,” said Kim Hyun, Tokyo Bureau Chief of the Daehan Financial Daily. The Seoul Central District Public Prosecutors’ Office In January 2008, the Seoul Central District Public Prosecutors’ Office In January 2008, the Seoul Central District Public Prosecutors Office indicted a number of key figures from the ruling party. The mayor’s election was won by President Moon Jae-in’s President Moon Jae-in’s “friend of 30 years” who won the mayoral election.

The dignitaries arrested in this case are. 15 The total number of key figures arrested in this case reached 15.

The Ulsan mayoral election meddling case is the most serious allegation of fraud that has occurred under the Moon Jae-in administration. However, the trial has been slow in progress. More than two years have passed since the indictment was filed, and there is no indication as to when the first trial verdict will be rendered. Kim continues.

The biggest reason is that the then Minister of Justice, who was at odds with the opposition attorney general, obstructed the investigation by moving a large number of prosecutors to the left. The prosecutor general who obstructed the investigation was the new president, Mr. Yun. The situation changed drastically when Yun won the presidential election. The investigation could progress quickly. If his involvement is revealed, President Moon Jae-in could be arrested.

Moon will soon leave the presidency. After that, a tragic end may await him.
