(Family and kin) Older sister helping her fugitive brother
|The release from office (chôngjik) of older sister of Yi Sôk-ki, who was helped by her while he was searched by police because the Inhyôktang affair, was declared wrongful (?) by the administrative court (article in Hankyoreh). Ministry of Defence suspended her from office for 2 months after she was found guilty of helping her fugitive brother, and now she won her claim against the Ministry. "The complainant (?) provided his younger brother with 500 000 won a month and with other assistance during his hideout period, but as an action between siblings, this cannot be seen to be a breach of criminal law," and "giving money to the younger brother suspected of a crime is not a breach against "government employee's character (p'umwi)".|
Well, this looks almost like a reversal of the yônjwaje (연좌제), guilty by association; not being suspect because of a family relation to a "security criminal", but being given immunity because of siblingship.
