Libel trial against Chun Doo-hwan held yesterday

오늘 전두환 8차 공판 열려..


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

 

Jong Min Kim has more details

 

Another libel trial against Chun Doo-Hwan was held at the Gwangju District Court yesterday. He again, did not appear at the trial.

 

Recently revealed video footage of Chun playing golf has sparked public anger as he has been claiming that Alzheimers disease was behind his delayed appearance at the trial.

 

In todays trial Chuns attorney called in witnesses including retired military officials on duty during the movement to prove his argument that there was no shooting.

 

Although the court started the trial in May 2018, Chun repeatedly refused to attend citing his poor health condition. In January this year, the court issued a subpoena to begin the trial, and Chun finally appeared for the first time in March.

 

The key to the ongoing trial on Chun is whether he had known that it was false to say there was no helicopter shooting when he denied the late Priest Cho Cheol-Hyuns testimony and whether Chun had the intention to defame Cho in his memoir.
