News coverage from press conference

Posted on Updated on

Our press conference has successfully generated quite a bit of news coverage on the issue of NIS interference in South Korean democracy. Here are few highlights. For more, please try Naver news search (keywords: “외국 학자 국정원”).

Last month, the spy agency arrested a far-left nationalist opposition lawmaker on charges of plotting an armed rebellion against the South Korean government in the event of war with North Korea. “To many in Korea and abroad, it appears that the N.I.S. is using a crude distraction in order to avoid scrutiny of its own alleged illegal activities, and to justify its existing powers,” more than 200 scholars on Korea living abroad  said in a joint statement released on Tuesday.
