Another Witness testifies against Chun Do Hwan

전두환 7일 광주 형사재판에 핵심 증인 출석

Another Witness testifies against Chun Do Hwan

 

Another criminal trial of former President Chun Doo Hwan, who is charged with defaming the late priest Cho Cheol Hyeon was held on Monday at the Gwangju District Court.

 

Jongmin Kim has more.

 

A Catholic layman Lee, who claims to have witnessed a helicopter fire at the same place as the late priest Cho, took the witness stand and was questioned by the prosecution and defense during the hearing today.

 

He is the only other person who says he witnessed helicopter fire at the same place as late priest Cho at the time, and is in fact seen as a key witness.

 

Lee, who previously kept a low profile, was revealed through a trial held in April. Cho Young Dae, the nephew of the late priest Cho and one of the plaintiffs in the case, testified to Lee's existence.

 

Lee is known to have testified in detail about the situation at Honam-dong Cathedral in eastern Gwangju on May 21st, 1980, and how he and the late priest Cho witnessed the helicopter shooting.

 

Besides Lee, three other citizens also appeared to state the truth.

 

In a previous session of the court, Chuns attorneys argued that he hadnt given orders for a helicopter attack during the Gwangju Uprising and that there wasnt even clear evidence that a helicopter attack had actually occurred
