Japanese man was prosecuted in South Korea for violating home order
Seoul Western District Court (Yonhap)
Overseas Network July 3rdLocal time, Seoul, South Korea The Western District Court opened a hearing on a case of violation of home segregation regulations. The defendant was a 23-year-old Japanese man. The prosecution sought a six-month sentence on the same day, and the defense lawyer stated that the man had misunderstood the isolation measures and requested that the sentence be commuted as appropriate.
According to the Japan News Agency reported on the 3rd, after entering the country on April 2, the man was asked by the health department to stay at home for 14 days, but he left the residence 8 times during this period. In the court hearing on the 3rd, the prosecutor said that considering that the defendant was a foreigner, he had limited understanding of Korean law, so he sought a six-month sentence.
The defense lawyer for the defendant’s man stated that “the defendant misunderstood South Korea’s segregation measures, thinking that like Japan’s ‘home order’, it just minimized going out, not completely isolating it from the outside world.” The lawyer also said that the man was deeply introspective and hoped that the court would deal with it leniently. The court will announce the results of the trial on the 15th of this month.
According to Yonhap News Agency’s earlier report, a 27-year-old man in South Korea was sentenced to four months’ imprisonment on May 26 for two violations of his home order. . (Overseas Wang Xiluo)
