Moon calls for thorough reform of Coast Guard

대통령 "세월호 영원한 교훈으로 삼아야해경에 국민의 명령"

Moon calls for thorough reform of Coast Guard

 

President Moon Jae In said on the 13th that the Coast Guard should reconstruct itself to win public trust again after mishandling the deadly 2014 ferry sinking that claimed the lives of more than 300 people.

 

President Moon made the remarks during a ceremony marking the 64th anniversary of the establishment of the Coast Guard, formerly called the Maritime Police Agency. President added the agency should take the sinking of the Sewol Ferry as an eternal lesson and carry out deep reforms.

 

In 2014, the Coast Guard came under intense criticism for its poor initial response as the ferry carrying a total of 467 people sank off the south coast. The accident left 299 dead and 5 others still unaccounted for.

 

Former President Park Geun Hye dismantled the Coast Guard to calm the public anger and gave its duties to other ministries and agencies. The Coast Guard got its name and status back in July after President Moon took office.
