President Moon Jae-in apologized for causing confusion regarding the suspension and subsequent reinstatement of the nation’s top prosecutor.
According to Cheong Wa Dae, the South Korean leader respects the court’s decision for Yoon Seok-youl to resume his post.
On Thursday the prosecutor general won an injunction against the justice ministry’s decision to suspend him for two months over alleged misconduct, including the surveillance of judges hearing politically sensitive cases.
The president expressed hope, this will be an opportunity for the prosecution to reflect on the fair and restrained exercise of power, adding that the justice ministry and prosecution must work together for prosecutorial reform.
