[앵커브리핑] “많이 컸네… 많이 컸네…” (All grown up…)


뉴스룸의 앵커브리핑을 시작하겠습니다.

This is today’s anchor briefing.

채 서른이 못 된 젊은 아내는 어린 딸을 둘러업고 매일 서대문구치소로 향했습니다.

A young wife no more than 30 years old walked to the Seodaemun Prison in central Seoul every day carrying her little daughter.

남편을 만나볼 수는 없었지만 그렇다고 그만둘 수는 없었습니다.

She was unable to see her husband, but that didn't stop her from coming.

대법원 선고를 일주일 앞둔 어느 날 처지를 딱하게 여긴 어느 교도관의 배려로 아내는 먼발치에서 남편을 바라보게 됐습니다.

A week before the Supreme Court’s ruling is announced, a warmhearted prison guard, who was aware of the wife’s helpless attempts, allowed her to see her husband from afar.

*warmhearted: 친절한, 온정이 있는

안타까운 가족의 눈이 허공에서 얽힌 짧은 순간…

During the very short moment when the man saw his wife and daughter…

아는 내색을 하면 낭패라는 사실을 알기에 아버지는 어린 딸을 향해, 몇 마디를 중얼거리고는 그만이었습니다.

and knowing that  showing any slight recognition would result in him getting into trouble, the father mumbled a few words to his daughter.

"많이 컸네… 많이 컸네…"

"You’ve grown up so much… I can barely recognize you…"

선고가 내려진 지 채 24시간도 지나지 않아 전원 사형이 집행되었던 인혁당 사건.

All of the accused were executed less than 24 hours after the ruling of capital punishment was handed down.

* the accused: 피의자

"가장 가슴 아픈 것은 이 자리에 피고인들이 사형당해 없다는 것이다"
- 이기택 부장판사. 2005년 인혁당 사건 재심 개시일

“The saddest thing is that those who were accused are no longer here because they were executed,”
- Judge Lee Ki-taek at a retrial of the "People’s Revolutionary Party Case" in 2005

법원은 30여년의 시간이 지나서야 재심을 결정했고 2007년 뒤늦게 무죄 판결을 내렸습니다. 

The court decided to retry the case 30 years later and then the court acquitted them in 2007.

* acquit: 무죄를 선고하다

꽃비 내리던 봄날 유신의 겨울을 이어가기 위해 사람을 죽인 사법살인의 가슴 아픈 역사였습니다.

In order to continue the Park Chung Hee dictatorship, the judiciary committed legal murder on dissidents. It was a heartbreaking moment in Korean history.

* legal murder: 사법살인 *dissident: 반체제인사

"그 부분에 대해선 대법원 판결이 두 가지로 나오지 않았습니까?"
- 2012년 9월 10일 "손석희의 시선집중"

Regarding the case, weren’t there already two Supreme Court rulings?
- September 10, 2012 "Sohn Suk-hee’s Focus of Attention"

2012년 9월.

September 2012

18대 대선을 100일 남겨두었던 날.

Just 100 days before the 18th presidential election day.

유력 대선후보는 유신시절 법원의 판결과 뒤늦게 이를 바로잡은 재심판결을 같은 선상에 두고

When questioned about the executions, Park Geun-hye, a presidential candidate at the time, made dismissive remarks as if the Supreme Court handed down two different rulings on the same case even though the retrial corrected the earlier wrong ruling.

이후 악화된 여론 탓이었을까.

Was it because the public was angry?

“잘못 읽은 것이 아니라
발음이 정확하지 않았을 뿐…”
- 이상일 새누리당 대변인 (2012년 9월 24일)

She’s not reading it incorrectly...
It’s just that her pronunciation is off…
- Rep. Lee Sang-il of the Saenuri Party (September 24, 2012)

사과입장을 낭독하던 순간마저도 인혁당을 민혁당이라 잘못 읽어… 뒷말을 남겼던 기억이 있습니다.

Even when she was reading her prepared apology out loud, she mispronounced Inhyeokdang, the People’s Revolutionary Party, as Minhyeokdang, causing commentators to question her sincerity.

법을 인정하지 않았던 비뚤어진 징후는, 거기서부터 시작된 것은 아니었을까…

Maybe this was a sign that she would not respect the law…

그리고 지난 주말.

And last week

"정치 검찰의 사법살인"
"촛불 쿠데타 세력에 굴종한 사법부"
"법치사망” “살인재판"

The legal murder by prosecutors kowtowing to incumbent political power
The Ministry of Justice that bent its knees to the forces of the candlelight coup d'état
The demise of the rule of law. Murder trial


“legal murder”

함부로 등장해선 안 될 그 단어가…

A term that shouldn’t be recklessly used…

* recklessly: 무모하게, 함부로

그를 옹위하고 있는 사람들 가운데서 터져 나왔습니다.

That term was spoken out by the loyal supporters of former President Park.

"박근혜 피고인을 징역 24년 벌금 180억 원에 처한다"
- 서울중앙지방법원 1심 판결 2018년 4월 6일

“The accused Park Geun-hye is sentenced to 24 years in prison and 18 billion won in fines.”
- Seoul Central District Court during the trial on April 6, 2018.

보여주어도 읽지 않고, 들려주어도 듣지 않을 그들을 향해서 100분의 주문을 생방송으로 공개하며 읽어 내려갔던 이유는 법에 의한 판결문에 부끄러움이 없었기 때문일 것…

The reason that the court allowed the live broadcast of Park’s verdict was to show that there was nothing shameful in the court’s decision. This 100-minute broadcast was directed to those who refused to read or listen to the verdict.

* verdict: 판결

그리고 오늘 4월 9일은 공교롭게도 1975년, 8명의 생목숨을 앗아간 유신의 사법살인이 자행되었던 바로 그 날입니다.

Today, April 9, is the very day that legal murder was committed in 1975, taking the lives of eight innocent people.

꽃잎 흐드러지던 유신의 봄 그 한복판에서 벌어진 비극의 시간 앞에서…

Facing the tragedy to continue the Park Chung Hee dictatorship …

"많이 컸네… 많이 컸네…"

"You’ve grown so much… I can barely recognize you…"

어린 딸의 머리 한번 쓸어주지 못했던 아비의 죽음 앞에서…

Facing the death of a father who was never able to touch his daughter’s hair

떨어져 내리던 꽃비는… 오늘도 여전했습니다.

The petals of flowers are falling down… still today.

*petal: 꽃잎
