[EDITORIALS]No quick fix allowedThe conflict between the court and the prosecutors office provoked by the rejection of arrest warrants from Seoul Central District Court surrounding the Lone Star case has seemingly calmed down. But the public, which has has watched the turmoil, cannot get rid of its depressed feeling easily.
The court and the prosecutors office are two pillars sustaining the function of applying and executing the law. Furthermore, they are the final authorities who should render judgement on disputes among various parties. Thus they should secure the trust and authority from the public. No quick fix is allowed in this case.
The change of the role and prestige of these two legal bodies will be inevitable when the rulings depend upon the statements at the court rather than the records of investigation. So there exists every possibility of re-ignition of the struggle. The utmost effort should be focused on the preparation of detailed plans to minimize the side effects of that change rather than emotional fights.
