광주시, 5·18 허위사실 유포 12건 추가 수사의뢰…총 26

Gwangju requests investigation of 12 more cases of false information about May 18.


The City of Gwangju announced that it has requested the police to investigate 12 additional internet posts that contain false information about the May 18 Democratic Movement.


The city previously requested 14 cases of false claims about May 18 for the 1st round of investigation, now raised to 26.


Reportedly, most of the posts submitted to the police claimed that North Korea was involved in May 18, and that the Gwangju Uprising was a revolt or riot.


The city explained that these posts are believed to have violated the May 18 Special Act which was passed by the National Assembly last year.


Under the May 18 Special Act, posting false information about May 18 will result in up to 5 years in prison or a fine of up to 50 million won.
