Civilian Victim of the Yeosu.Suncheon(여순) Incident found innocent

 

A civilian who was executed after a false accusation of cooperating with the rebels at the Armed Rebellion of Yeosu(여수) and Suncheon(순천) in 1948 has been found innocent today.

 

This is 72 years after the wrongful execution that his reputation was redeemed.

 

The Criminal Chamber 1 of the Suncheon(순천) Branch of Gwangju District Court acquitted the civilian victim Jang HwanBong(장환봉) at the second trial and apologized.

 

The court-martial in 1948 sentenced Jang, who was a 29 year-old railway engineer at the time of the incident, to charges of treason and subversion of national sovereignty

 

Jang GyungJa(장경자), the daughter of Jang, aged 75 said upon the judgement I am most grateful and happy for the good results that my fathers unfair death has not been made in vain.
