Lee Hoi Chang Attacks President Kim

Lee Hoi Chang, president of the opposition Grand National Party(GNP), today, refused president Kim Dae Jung's current demand to apologize for misusing governmental power during last year's presidential election. He rather asked president Kim to apologize first for the recent political investigation permeating his party.
The ruling National Congress for New Politics(NCNP) instantly issued their statement blaming Lee's attitude. A source from the NCNP commented, 'It is very absurd and ridiculous for the GNP to make such claims for only a couple of days ago Lee, himself, hinted that he intended to render an apology to the general public and now he is insisting that we beg.'
For both sides the political intractability is getting more and more serious and will only get worse as the political investigation by the public prosecutor expands.
The prosecutors stated that the opposition party's Kim Yoon Hwan was found to have managed huge illegal slush fund. They continued, 'We are searching for Kim and his nephew's 138 bank accounts and Kim will be summoned soon.'
The office seems to have secured a lot of statements for Kim's guilt including the nephew's confession.
