[VIDEO NEWS] A tense moment at the National Assembly


1) “You are overly limiting the right of National Assembly representatives to speak. Even as the legislative branch, it is the duty of the National Assembly to point out what is wrong and share individual opinions.” – Park Jie-won of the Party for Democracy and Peace

2) “There is an appeals process. You can ask for an appeal if you disagree with the legislature’s decision.” – Yeo Sang-kyoo, chairman of the Legislation and Judiciary Committee

3) “I am just pointing out something wrong.” – Park

4) “What have I done wrong?” – Yeo

5) “You are just here to lead the hearing as a chairman. You think you’re a judge? [using informal language]” - Park

6) “Did you just… What are you doing right now? Using ‘you’ [in informal tense]?”– Yeo

7) “Of course, you [informal]. You think you’re above us?” – Park

8) “[Muttering in disbelief] We’ll take a three-minute break.” – Yeo

9) This heated discussion happened when Yeo Sang-kyoo, the chairman of the hearing, disagreed with the Democratic Party’s statement that the court has rejected warrants for former Chief Justice Yang Sung-tae, who allegedly abused his authority during the Park Geun-hye administration, an alarming number of times.
