A key victory


Leaders of the Korean Railway Workers’ Union cheer on Monday outside the Seoul Western District Court in Mapo District, central Seoul, after key figures of the group, including former head Kim Myung-hwan, third from right in front row, were found not guilty in leading a 22-day strike in December 2013. The walkout followed the decision by the Korea Railway Corporation (Korail) to form a separate subsidiary to run a new bullet train service linking Suseo-dong in southern Seoul with Busan. The court said it ruled in favor of four union members because they had notified Korail of the strike in advance so that it could prepare backup plans beforehand. The prosecution said it will lodge an appeal. [NEWSIS]
