PM warns of stern response against mass Oct 3rd rallies amid pandemic

정부 "개천절 불법집회 87건 금지...단순 참가자도 처벌 가능"
PM warns of stern response against mass Oct 3rd rallies amid pandemic


The Prime Minister Jung SaeGyun(정세균) pleaded with conservative civic groups today to withdraw plans to stage massive anti-government rallies in early Oct. This is as the country is struggling to contain the spread of the COVID 19 virus.


The Prime Minister warned once again that the government will deal sternly with any illegal mass rallies to avert transmission risks.


Jung said in a regular government COVID 19 response meeting that "I request that the concerned groups roll back their rally plans".


Jung continued with "It is hard to understand, some organizations are sticking to plans to hold rallies on National Foundation Day (on Oct. 3rd) even though the government is paying a high price for the (virus) resurgence triggered by the Aug. 15th Liberation Day rallies".


As of yesterday, more than 580 COVID 19 cases have been traced to the Liberation Day rallies.


Several right-wing civic groups have pledged to launch mass rallies with 10 or more protesters in central Seoul(서울) on Oct. 3rd in defiance of Seoul(서울)'s ban on such rallies in light of the recent resurgence of COVID 19 cases.
