Prosecution admits torturing Cho
Regarding the death of Cho Chun-hoon, a suspect held for questioning at Seoul District Prosecutorís Serious Crime Squad, the Supreme Public Prosecutorsí Office (SPPO) announced Friday that allegations of torture with water appear to be true. A man identified as Park, an alleged conspirator of Cho, claimed that during his interrogation, investigators poured water on him and beat him until he lost consciousness. However, prosecutors have denied all allegations of torture with water, and the autopsy of the late Cho has not shown clear traces of torture. Still, police and courts have shown concern that this case of brutal and inhumane investigations is leading people to further distrust their legislative organizations.
