Seoul- In the early hours of Friday, three mayors were found dead in the South Korean capital in the mountainous area of the South Korean capital. Municipal officials said that the former secretary reportedly accused him of sexual misconduct, and a few days later he apologized to his family and the Korean people.
After his daughter reported that he was missing, the police searched Mayor Park Yuanchun on Thursday evening.
During the seven-hour search park, hundreds of police officers used sniffer dogs and drones, mainly concentrated on the mountain where the cell phone signal north of Seoul was finally found. His body was found on Mount Bujak on Thursday night. The police have not yet commented on the cause of his death.
Parker said in a written record on his desk: “I’m sorry for everyone. I want to thank everyone who has been there all my life. I’m sorry for my family because I only caused you pain.” He asked for the cremation of his body and scattered the ashes in a family cemetery, simply saying, “Goodbye, everyone.”
South Korean network SBS said a former secretary has been working with Park since 2017 and has filed a lawsuit on July 8 alleging sexual abuse. She allegedly accused him of sending obscene phone messages.
Police officials said that the case against the deceased mayor has been closed because there is actually nothing to sue.
Some South Koreans expressed online frustration at the decision not to investigate the allegations, saying that law enforcement officials seem unwilling to file cases of sexual harassment.
Before Yuanyuan Chun was elected mayor in 2011, he was a human rights lawyer. In the years since then, he has gained a reputation in national politics as a popular progressive and has even been discussed as a possible presidential candidate.
Last year, he claimed to be a feminist and said he had read tears An international best-selling book detailing the dilemmas women may face in a conservative, often sexist society in South Korea.
City officials announced that a five-day funeral will be held at a local university hospital, where flowers are surrounded by pictures of the late mayor, and people paid tribute here on Friday.
The public memorial will also be held on Friday at Seoul City Hall Plaza.
