Chun Doo-Hwan filmed playing golf despite claims of Alzheimer’s disease

알츠하이머 전두환골프장서 포착..


Former President Chun Doo Hwan, who is charged with defaming the last priest Cho Cheol Hyeon, has been refusing to attend court for his criminal trial insisting that he is suffering from Alzheimers disease. However, he was recently filmed playing golf with his friend.

 

Jong Min Kim tells us more.

 

Chun Doo-Hwan was filmed playing golf in Hongcheon, Gangwon Province last Friday, raising questions about claims that he cannot appear at a libel trial in Gwangu due to his health condition.

 

Lim Han-Sol, Vice Chief of the minor opposition Justice Party, revealed a video clip of Chun playing golf apparently in good health despite claims by his lawyer that he is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

 

Lim, in the video clip questioned Chun about the Gwangju Democratic Movement but Chun denied involvement, claiming that he was not in a position to give the order to shoot.

 

Chun was accused of libel in early 2018 after he called a priest who said he personally witnessed helicopters firing at protesters Satan wearing a mask.

 

Chun has refused to attend trial in person for related court proceedings, citing Alzheimer's disease, but has repeatedly been known to have played golf several times without apparent discomfort.

 

Meanwhile, his next libel trial is scheduled for the 11th this month at the Gwangju Regional Court. Chuns lawyer reportedly requested to summon then-helicopter troops to identify the truth but it is unclear whether any of them will attend.
