Thorough investigation into ferry sinking called for

The south Korean website Voice of People on Oct 7 carried an editorial calling for a steady struggle for probing the truth behind the disaster of ferry Sewol.

The editorial said 2 000 days have lapsed since the disaster, deploring that the truth has not yet been probed and those who are accountable for the disaster not been punished.

It noted that bereaved families and citizens declared their action demanding probing of the truth and punishment of those responsible for the disaster.

It urged the "government" and the "National Assembly" to take a special step of setting up an ad-hoc investigation team for probing the truth behind the disaster and the prosecution to investigate the disaster again.
