Libel trial against Chun Doo Hwan held on July 8

전두환 5·18 재판…'헬기 사격' 목격자 4명 증언

Libel trial against Chun Doo Hwan held on July 8

 

A hearing on Chun Doo Hwan’s libel trial was held on Monday in Gwangju.

 

The Gwangju Regional Court held the hearing from 2 p.m. in Chun’s absence. Chun received the court’s permission in March for non-attendance.

 

At the hearing, 4 witnesses who saw helicopter shootings during the May 18 Democratic Uprising took the stand. A total of 11 witnesses delivered testimonies in hearings held in May and June.

 

Chun has been indicted for calling late Priest Cho Pius a liar and a masked Satan in his memoir published in April 2017, insisting Cho's testimony on witnessing a helicopter shooting at civilians during the May 18 Democratic Uprising was a lie.
