abolition of death sentence in South Korea

The editorial of Kyunghyang Sinmun reminds us that the death penalty has still not yet been abolished in South Korea. Today is the 30 years since the so-called Inhyôktang affair (Inhyôktang=Inmin hyôngmyôngdang, People's revolutionary party), in which eight people accused of forming a party of that name were executed the very next morning after their sentence was confirmed. There is a good chance that the death penalty will be abolished, as a clear majority of parlamentarians signed the abolition bill which is now under scrutiny in the Legislation committee (the head of which is unfortunately in favor of death sentence).
