Ashes found near the old Gwangju prison.

옛 광주교도소서 유골 40여구 나와…5·18 연관성 주목

Ashes found near the old Gwangju prison.


Some 40 specimens of remains were found during the retrofit work at a cemetery near the old Gwangju prison area on Friday according to a Ministry of Justice official.


At the site, authorities including the acting Justice Minister Kim Oh Su (김오수) and the Chief of Gwangju District Prosecutors Office Moon Chan Suk (문찬석) participated in the investigation.


The cemetery was designated as the Solomon Law Park establishment project which is supervised by the Ministry of Justice and was under construction since the 16th.


The remains have been moved to the Armed Forces Combined Hospital for future examinations including DNA identification.


It is reported that May 18th Democratic Movement related officials claimed that it could be the victims of the Gwangju Uprising who were secretly buried.


Opposed officials remarked that it is not related to the 1980 movement since the location is known to be a cemetery.
