Opposition parties demand overseas travel ban on former spy chief

South Korea's opposition parties demanded Saturday that former government spy chief Won Sei-hoon be barred from leaving the country, claiming that his travel abroad would make it hard to investigate allegation that he had interfered in domestic politics.

The demand comes after published media reports that the former chief of the National Intelligence Service (NIS) will leave for the United States on Sunday and stay there for some time. The media did not say why he was leaving.
