Prime Minister Office Reportedly Supported Organization Insisting ‘May 18th Was a Riot’

 

The national Prime Minister’s Office reportedly provided financial aid of up to 20 million to an organization for a lecture that insisted the May 18th Democratic Movement in Gwangju was a violent riot.

According to a report submitted by the Secretary’s Office of the Prime Minister’s Office on the ‘2013 Civil and Business Subsidiary Project’, the Prime Minister’s Office aided the ‘Korea Protection Buddhists’ Association’ with 20 million won for a lecture focusing on discarding the June 15th Joint Declaration and renaming May 18th Democratic Uprising as a riot.

Representative Kim Gi-sik from the main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy, who released the respective report by the Prime Minister’s Office, pointed out that there needs to be a careful investigation of the financial support given by the Prime Minister’s Office as the publicly-funded project contained defamatory and erroneous content.
