Chun Doo Hwan’s witnesses deny the chopper shooting.

전두환 측 증인 5·18 조종사들, 헬기 사격 부인


Witnesses who appeared in court for the former President Chun Doo Hwan (전두환) testified on Monday that there was no helicopter shooting during the Gwangju Democratic Movement.

 

Four witnesses including the former General of the 1st Aviation Brigade Song Jin Won (송진원) were present at the Gwangju District Court for the testimony. According to them, warning shots were planned but because of the caption of Air Force 103, the decision was retracted for the safety of citizens. They also added that the bullets must be found if the shooting really happened.

 

Former General Song insisted that it was true that an armed chopper was dispatched, however there were no commands to shoot.

 

Song added, “It is possible that the citizens might have misheard the sound of the chopper as gun fire.”

 

However, the testimony was very different from the Staff Sergeant Choi Jong Ho who claimed in court this September that the bullet boxes issued to the helicopter were later found partially used.

 

Chun, who is charged with defaming the late priest Cho Cheol Hyeon, has been refusing to attend court for his criminal trial insisting that he is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
