[Letter to the editor]Prosecutors didn’t dispel doubts
The long-awaited result of a prosecutorial investigation has plunged the country into extreme conflict. Several days ago, in a media conference, a special prosecutor announced that Lee Myung-bak, the front-running presidential hopeful, was innocent of accusations related to a failed business.
But some still hold doubts about seemingly conflicting evidence. In short, the prosecutors, an organ for justice, haven’t earned enough trust from ordinary people, a considerable number of whom, ironically, support Lee, recent polls have showed.
The prosecutors have repeatedly proclaimed that they stand for political neutrality and an unbiased investigation. But there are many unanswered questions that won’t go away.
It is deplorable that the prosecutors have put forth a candidate to be legally innocent, but were not able to show a transparent, compelling investigation.
That has disappointed patriotic people longing for a better country and respectable prosecutors. Kim Seon-joon, Seoul
