Ahn Cheol-soo proposes to establish a truth committee to investigate ‘North Korea murdered public officials’


Rep. Ahn Cheol-soo of People’s Strength proposed the establishment of a special investigation truth committee in the National Assembly to find out the truth about whether a public official belonging to the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries, who was killed in a North Korean gunshot on the 20th, has fled North Korea.

Rep. Ahn posted on Facebook this morning, saying, “Although it is late, I propose to establish a ‘Truth Committee on the Special Investigation of the Murder of a Public Official of the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries’ (tentative name) in the National Assembly. Because it is a matter of the country’s most fundamental reason for existence and responsibility, it is quite natural to step forward in the National Assembly.”

Assemblyman Ahn said, “We need to make it clear whether the Moon Jae-in administration has driven our people to the North Korean incident as a scapegoat for the declaration of an end to the war and the improvement of inter-Korean relations.” It is absolutely unforgivable if it is used as a scapegoat.”

He added, “Fortunately, the Special Investigation Bureau of the Board of Audit and Inspection is conducting an audit on case-related organizations such as the Korea Coast Guard and the Ministry of National Defense,” he said. He added, “My heart is broken by the pain of the families who have been framed as North Korean defectors’ families. We sincerely welcome the opening of the door to the truth of the case, which is disappointing but distorted and concealed.”

Rep. Ahn also questioned the government’s judgment, which weighed heavily on the “flight” of public officials killed in the West Sea.

“One of them is that, because the sea temperature in North Korea’s waters is low, if you don’t wear a waterproof suit, you can die of hypothermia. Therefore, it is a reasonable guess that if he really tried to defect to North Korea, he would have tried wearing a waterproof suit.”

“However, the waterproof suit was still in the room of the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries official’s room,” he said. That is why the bereaved families claimed that the Coast Guard deliberately concealed these circumstances and statements that did not fit into North Korea voluntarily.”

Meanwhile, on the 19th, the People’s Power launched the ‘Task Force (TF) to find out the truth about the murder of a public official in the West Sea,’ led by Assemblyman Ha Tae-kyung.
