S. Korean Lawyers Issue Declaration on Situation
Pyongyang, November 13 (KCNA) -- Lawyers under the 14 local bar associations in different parts of south Korea turned out in the action to urge Park Geun Hye to step down from office on Nov. 11, according to the south Korean internet paper Voice of People.

They held a press conference outside the Lawyers House in Seoul on the same day and issued a declaration on the situation signed by more than 3,200 lawyers.

The declaration said that a tiny handful of forces privatized the power and used it as a means of accumulation.

The disclosed "Park Geun Hye, Choe Sun Sil scandal" is no more than a tip of iceberg, it said, adding that thorough probe into the truth should be made and those involved in the scandal should be punished.
