[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]Lawmaker deserves trialPark Jun-seong’s article about Roh Hae-Chan (“Lawmaker’s act crosses line” Aug. 25) was very well presented.
In Korea, too often the end justifies the means. Roh believed that the prosecutors were corrupt and accepted bribes. This justified his releasing the names of the prosecutors. However, Roh pre-empted the judicial process and acted as judge and jury. Even guilty criminals have the right to a trial. More importantly, Roh abused his position as a National Assemblyman and used his access to privileged information for personal glorification and attention.
I believe that Roh should be indicted, tried, and if found guilty, should be punished. He is entitled to a fair trial, even if the prosecutors mentioned never had that luxury.
