This cartoon depicts the Ministry of Justice bowing to President Park Geun-hye and crushing the prosecutors who were responsible for investigating state institutions’ interference in the 2012 presidential election and the case of ousted Prosecutor General Chae Dong-wook. In a personnel shift last week, all of the staff responsible for investigating those misdeeds by state institutions were reassigned to posts in the provinces and none of them were promoted. The reassignments are being seen as a kind of reprisal by the Park Geun-hye government, which doesn’t want these scandals to be honestly investigated. (by Jang Bong-koon)
