  • Description

    Former ministers and officials of ex-President Syngman Rhee's administration, on trial in the capital Seoul, were taken in handcuffs to the Presidential palace, July 21, for on-the-spot investigation of the April 19 shootings in which 10 demonstrators were killed.

    The former Chief of Police and Rhee's security chief were among prisoners who described police action against anti-Rhee demonstrators. Next day, July 22, the trial continued inside the Presidential palace. Former Minister for Home Affairs Choi, indicted with depriving people of their right to vote, and so subverting the Constitution, told the Court he was responsible for faking March 15 Presidential election, and absolved leaders of Rhee's Liberal Party from responsibility. His excuse - he believed Rhee to be the best man for the Presidency.
