South Korea to Request North Korea about a Joint Probe into the Mysterious Death of a South Korean Government Worker

  • South Korea has taken an unprecedented step by suggesting to conduct a joint probe with North Korea on the mysterious death of a South Korean government worker. The move comes just hours after North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un sent an apology letter to South Korea's Blue House for the killing of a 47-year South Korean man. South Korea's presidential office has said after a meeting of the National Security Council that they are going to request an additional and joint probe on the issue with North Korea. Both the countries have never conducted a joint probe since the 1950-53 Korean War as they are technically at war till now. People Power Party, the main opposition party of South Korea, has called on President of South Korea Moon Jae-In to refer the case to the International Criminal Court.
