Cabinet Approves Prosecution Reform Plan


The government has passed a reform plan aimed at balancing out the prosecution's investigative power.

Jongmin Kim reports


Prime Minister Lee Nak-Yon presided over a Cabinet meeting this morning during which officials reviewed and passed the reform plan announced yesterday by former Justice Minister Cho Kuk before he resigned from his post.


 At the Cabinet meeting, the revision of the regulation on the administrative bodies of the Prosecutor’s Office was approved. As a result, four of the seven special investigation divisions at district offices will be closed down. The remaining three will be renamed anti-corruption investigation divisions.


The regulation on the administrative bodies of the Prosecutor’s Office is a Presidential decree, and does not require the approval of the National Assembly.


The special investigation division was first established within the Supreme Prosecutor ’s Office in January 1973. With the division handling high-profile cases including those involving major political and corporate figures, the special investigation division had come to symbolize the prosecution ’ s power.


Along with the aforementioned changes, the Cabinet also approved a number of items including the plans to extend deployment of peacekeeping forces in South Sudan and Lebanon by one year.
