Forensic-dentistry-archeology experts to participate in May 18 excavations

 

The May 18 Memorial Foundation and the Ministry of Justice on the 12th discussed overall plans for excavating an alleged secret burial site from the May 18 Democratic Uprising.

 

The foundation highlighted that local experts will take part in the search for missing people from the May 18 event. And the list includes Prof. Park Jong Tae of Forensics at Chonnam National University; Prof. Yoon Chang Ryook of Dentistry at Chosun University; and Cho Hyeon Jong, former head of the Gwangju National Museum.

 

Also, the foundation explained that 3 major May organizations of the bereaved families, wounded and arrested will all participate in the operation.

 

The justice ministry, owner of the alleged secret burial site, the old Gwangju Prison, said they agree with the purpose of the operation and they will soon make a decision on its excavation.

 

According to army records, 28 people were killed at the Gwangju Prison during the 1980s democratization movement but only 11 bodies have been found after.
