Representative Lee Jae-myung of the Democratic Party of Korea on Sunday took aim at Lee Dong-kwan (pictured), a special adviser to the Presidential Office for Foreign Affairs먹튀검증, who is said to be the likely nominee for the new chairman of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission, claiming, “It is being said that he had one child and was the top perpetrator of school violence.”
“As if the ‘Chung Soon-sin incident’ wasn’t enough, President Yun Suk-yeol is said to have nominated the special adviser to be the head of the National Broadcasting Commission,” Lee said at the Supreme Council. “The child of Special Envoy Lee, the top official of the Lee Myung-bak (MB) regime, who was first called ‘Nuclear Guan,’ was a serious ‘bully’ (perpetrator) at a level incomparable to the ‘Jeong Soon-shin incident’ at the time, and the school violence committee was not even held,” he said, adding, “The perpetrator is said to have gone to a prestigious university after transferring.” “This special assistant is the vanguard of the MB regime’s ‘media suppression,'” Lee continued, “and we warn that the moment you appoint a media suppression technician to head the Korea Communications Commission, the regime of Yoon Seok-yeol, which started with a personnel disaster, will reach its peak. Immediately withdraw the appointment.”
The special envoy countered that the allegations are “exaggerated and inflated,” saying, “The parties reached an amicable settlement, and the victim even asked not to be transferred.” “Even under the current enhanced standards, if a settlement is reached, the abuse is not to be mentioned,” he added.
As for Lee’s claim of “media suppression” during the MB government, he countered that it was “just a political frame by the opposition. “During the ‘red waste liquidation’ investigation during the Moon Jae-in administration, many people were pressured to ‘confess the alleged misconduct of PR chief Lee Dong-kwan’ during the prosecution investigation,” Lee said, adding, “If Lee had actually taken control of the media at the time, would he have been safe?”
