6:35 pm
if no action follows an apology, thought it, then it's just a show show for the apology to be sincere. that has to be a special law established for compensation. aiyona or no one will accept the apology. she can even if they promised to make one right now, we're gonna who are done wouldn't come without clear survivors have been filing lawsuits for years. but brother's home closed in 1987 complicating legal options. him a picture you only about $600.00 applicants of so far come forward for the investigation . i want me to 1st understand exactly who the 30000 people were and why they were detained. and those were verified to have suffered could be compensated for their damages, headington loan. i'm either on guy now hand young son continues to ad details to his reconstruction, hoping it offers more concrete testimony is all on that on gone. if people cool this arc, perhaps maybe it is on, but i don't think it's odd. i got, but if that system can be seen with the eyes and then perhaps people could
6:36 pm
understand more easily and be more convinced was about i think that inspires me to recreate what i remember he'll get on eco hand. sister was taken to brother's home with him, she did not fare so well. his father was brought later. both have since lived in state, psychiatric hospitals. and young son now wants only to care for them. you don't either did a diesel. and from all this, i'm joined by c room, cool, a writer, and co founder of the platform, career exposure that reports and stories of from the korean peninsula, cyril, the brother's home scandal, isn't at all, or something one associates with the modern image of south korea that we at least all have how well known is this in south korea itself know the fact that it's not so well. no, no, so. so korea is unfortunate because it has been an extremely well known story inside the country ever since the case surfaced in 1087. and i'm sure you know the
6:37 pm
details of the horrific abuse. so hurt by those who had to stay in this facility. not to mention any people died and as a result on there was a great deal of media publicity in the eighty's, anybody here in the ninety's and was made the story even more shocking. so here is the fact that the perpetrators of this crime, well i really very lightly on and the founder of the facility and even when on to continue doing so called charity work after he was released from prison. and the family continues to maintain substantial fortune. due right from this there's so many aspects to this, but as you are going to say, the case already had come to light in 1987. what confounds me is that it's taken on to last month for this call for an apology to be issued by has it taken so long?
6:38 pm
well, it shows to some extent how just this works in this context. even when there are facts and there is an investigation, it does not necessarily be to meaningful action or change. in the case of brothers form, we were still looking at the tail end of the military dictatorship and so career and one that was facing considerable pressure from the various pro democracy writings within the country. the dictator at the time one was about to lose his power. and the government was very much invested in making sure that this new scandal is not add to the negative image on the document at the time. so it has been made known that the government also actively attended to conceal certain facts of the story and also to minimize the judicial proceedings that took place

6:40 pm
they received absolutely no support from the state. and in fact, to the contrary. many public officials attempted to conceal what happened within brothers home, especially in the city of san where the institution was located. the officials from the city government are known to have threatened survivors and told them not to go public with the story. so yesterday, when the last event for themselves, only this year after the findings of the truth and reconciliation commission stub it together attention. we heard from various government entities and also the city of course on, and they want to provide more support from now on 35 years lever there. thanks so much for joining us today. see one call from career exposure. thanks so much for the depth old from the
