Gov’t launches fact-finding panel on military deaths
SEOUL, Sept. 28 (Yonhap) — South Korea established a presidential panel Friday tasked with looking into the suspicious deaths of active-duty soldiers.
The 84-member team will operate for three years and will be headed by Lee In-ram, a human rights lawyer. His new job is a minister-level post.
His committee includes prosecutors, police officers and civilian investigators.
It plans to investigate a number of mysterious deaths in the country’s military that happened after the enactment of a military organization law in 1948.
