A Jeju District Court judge on Thursday fined Governor Won Hee-ryong 800,000 won for pre-electioneering in the lead-up to last year’s elections. That fine is not enough to force him from his position. The prosecution is now considering an appeal. Joseph Kim reports. [slug] Governor fined ₩800,000 for pre-electioneering The 2nd Criminal Division of the Jeju District Court sentenced governor Won Hee-ryong to a fine of 800,000 won for pre-electioneering. The sentence is smaller than what the Jeju District Prosecutor’s Office sought against him. Prosecutors had sought a 1.5 million won fine. INTERVIEW Won Hee-ryong / Governor Because of the court’s decision, I can better devote myself to my job as governor. I’ll do my best to repay everyone for their support. <인터뷰 : 원희룡 / 제주특별자치도지사> "이제 법원의 판결로 도정에 전념할 수 있게 됐기 때문에 도정 업무에 더 집중함으로써 여러분의 성원에 보답하도록 하겠습니다." If the governor was fined one million won or more for violating the Public Official Election Act, he would have lost the governorship. He will remain as governor, but still his pre-electioneering was unlawful. When asked about the guilty verdict, he didn’t mention anything. Won’s defense counsel acknowledged the proof provided by prosecutors and prosecutors’ claims about when, where and what Won did. However, prosecutors and Won’s side held contrary opinions on the illegality of the same act. ### C.G IN The court convicted the defendant saying that Won overstepped the line as a preliminary candidate. However, it added that his speech was simply about his pledges, not black propaganda against opposing candidates and the pre-electioneering didn’t affect the election as the audience was small. ### C.G OUT Now, the islanders’ eyes are on the Jeju District Prosecutor’s Office as prosecutors can lodge an appeal against the decision of the court in a week. If prosecutors give up the appeal, the governor can keep his governorship. [slug] Even if prosecutors appeal, Won will be able to serve most of term Even if prosecutors file an appeal, Won can serve out most of his term as it takes several months or years for the case to be referred to the High Court and Supreme Court. The court’s decision somewhat relieves the governor who has to settle a number of pending issues including the foreigner-only for-profit hospital and the second airport. [Reporter] Joseph Kim [Camera] Hyeon Gwang-hoon [CG] Kim Eun-kyo Prosecutors have announced that they will thoroughly review the written judgment and prudently decide whether they will file an appeal or not.

  • Jeju: A to Z (Saryeoni Forest Trail)
  • This week on Jeju: A to Z, Todd Thacker takes a brief look Saryeoni Forest and its popular walking trail, located in a UNESCO-designated Biosphere Reserve east of Jeju City. This is the Saryeoni Forest Trail, a popular course that meanders north-south between Jeju City and Seogwipo on the eastern side of Hallasan Mountain. [Slug CG] Saryeoni Forest Trail suitable for all ages, fitness levels The full 15-kilometer course runs through Jeju’s UNESCO-designated Biosphere Reserve. About 500 to 600 meters above sea level, it is an evenly graded path that is walkable by people of all ages and fitness levels. Known for its annual “eco-healing” walks and associated programs, hikers can spot a wide variety of trees, including dogwood, maple, and hornbeam. The forest’s cedar and cypress trees are home to many bird species. [Slug CG] Variety of trees, geological formations On the southern end of the trail is Saryeoni Oreum, the tallest volcanic cone in the area. It is noteworthy for its horse-shoe shape, steep slopes and a small volcanic feature on its western side. If you’d like to take a stroll along the path, there are some recent developments to keep in mind. [Slug CG] Improved facilities, parking relocated off-site Given the popularity of this forest trail, the local government has improved public facilities including washrooms and benches. However, space for individual cars is quite limited. To solve this problem, Jeju City has relocated the parking areas and increased city bus service and shuttle buses. Note that Mulchat Oreum, which is also also along the trail, is closed to hikers for most of the year so that the volcanic cone’s natural ecology can recover. However, this year it will open to small groups of hikers, with no reservations required, from June 16th to 24th. [Slug CG] Todd Thacker Saryeoni’s peaceful walking path and distinctive volcanic cone provide both locals and visitors alike with the chance to enjoy this area’s own small piece of paradise.
