First raid into FCTU office


Police drag a member out from the headquarters of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions on Dec. 22 in Jung District, central Seoul. Authorities tried to arrest key members of the railroad workers' union, mobilizing 5,000 police officers to forcibly enter the KCTU offices. But police came up empty in the raid. The raid marked the first time authorities had forced their way into the labor union's office since its foundation in 1995. [NEWSIS]

경찰이 12월22일 서울 중구 민주노총 본부에서 한 조합원을 끌어내고 있다. 당국은 철도노조 지도부를 체포하려고 경찰 5천명을 동원해 강제로 민주노총 사무실로 진입했다. 그러나 경찰은 이 작전에서 체포에 실패했다. 1995년 민주노총 설립 이후 처음으로 민주노총 본부에 공권력이 투입됐다. [뉴시스]
