PPP agrees to participate in Itaewon parliamentary probe
The People Power Party (PPP) and the Democratic Party (DP) agreed Wednesday to initiate a parliamentary probe into the Itaewon crowd crush.
The PPP agreed Wednesday to take part in the parliamentary probe after the National Assembly passes the national budget for next year. The liberal DP has been pushing for a probe since the disaster took place on Oct. 29.
The probe will take place over 45 days beginning on Thursday.
The Itaewon crowd crush took 158 lives, including 26 foreigners.
