Korea's controversial new justice minister
South Korea appointed a new justice minister, Ms. Kang Gum-sil. Already she has met with loud protests by senior prosecutors who do not agree with her plans to disregard seniority when making high-level appointments. In an effort to pacify both sides, Ms. Kang will re-open dialogue with Prosecutor General Kim Kak-yeoung this weekend.
