A complaints line will be installed in the Seoul District Prosecutorís Office (SDPO). The First Assistant Prosecutor General will assign a post holder to take calls, regarding any acts of brutality during investigations. In addition, an assistant prosecutor will serve as a human rights watchdog of sorts, by patrolling the building daily. Digital video cameras will be installed in interrogation rooms, to ensure suspects retain their human rights during interrogation. These measures come as a result of a recent suspected murder by torture during interrogation at the SDPO.
