‘Kim Geon-hee thesis’ witnesses absent from the National Inspectorate…

Starting tomorrow, the first parliamentary examination of Yun Seok-yeol’s administration will be held in the National Assembly.

In the examination of the Education Committee of the National Assembly, one of the main issues is the suspicion of plagiarism from Kim Gun-hee’s thesis. Most of the witnesses said that they would not attend for reasons such as foreign business trips.

The opposition protested that it was a ‘getaway business trip’.

Reporter Im Hyun-joo reports.

A total of 10 people were selected as witnesses for the National Education Committee’s examination tomorrow to check the plagiarism of Kim Gun-hee’s master’s thesis and doctorate.

However, among them, 8 submitted written reasons for not looking, and 2 of them had an unclear address, so their request for attendance was not submitted.

In the end, only one victim of plagiarism will appear as a witness, and it seems that not every witness to verify the claim of plagiarism will be present.

President Lim Hong-jae of Kookmin University, who ruled that Mrs. Kim’s doctoral thesis was not plagiarized, went on a business trip abroad to attend the National University of Mongolia event from today to the 10th.

Kim Ji-yong, chairman of Kookmin University, who has been staying abroad since the beginning of September, has arranged a business trip to the United States until the end of the national inspection.

President of Sookmyung Women’s University Jang Yun-geum, where Kim received her master’s degree, also presented a schedule to visit three European countries and three American cities from the 2nd to the 23rd.

Coincidentally, on the 23rd of last month, when the National Assembly decided to adopt a witness, a business trip plan was made.

The advisor informed the thesis written as ‘member Yuji’ in English for the retention of membership the absence of the lecture due to the lecture schedule.

The Democratic Party criticized it as evacuating a business trip abroad to avoid state audits.

“This is a business trip to avoid the national inspection, and the business trip itself costs a lot of money, so I intend to examine these matters thoroughly during this inspection.”

He also warned that if the witnesses continue to refuse to attend, he will also review issuing an order to accompany the public or the regular National Assembly on the 21st.

MBC requested an explanation from Kookmin University and Sookmyung Women’s University, but received no response.

At the time of the adoption of witnesses, the People’s Power criticized the Democratic Party as a capture, but did not take a stand on the non-appearance.
