Activist Dedicates Self for Social Justice
NASN Chief Yeon Do-Heum Fights Judges, Prosecutors

"It is funny that the current laws do not punish any prosecutors and judges even if they commit mistakes or wrongdoings," opined a political activist. "The current laws are not for the general public"

Yeon Do-Heum, president of the National Alliance for Saving Nations (NASN), argued that the prosecutors' monopoly of power for the prosecution should be changed. He explained that the police should also have the power and authority to prosecute the offenders. The current system dictates that the prosecutors have the exclusive rights for prosecution whereas the police has the right to investigate, meaning the prosecutors control the police investigators.

"Judges do not get punished even if their verdicts and judgements are wrong," Yeon stressed. "And prosecutors are not responsible for any of their wrong behaviors or misjudgements in prosecutions or in investigations"

Yeon made the remarks at the interview with The Seoul Times he had at his office in Gasan-dong in Seoul on Aug. 16, 2021. Yeon at 64 is practically a young man in his pro-bono NGO work. He spent nearly all his life, fighting against social injustice and political wrongdoings committed by corrupt politicians.

He and his 300-strong NASN members have been engaged in all kinds of activities for the social justice and political reforms.

Top politicians, government highups, judges and prosecutors, big businesses are all Yeon's targets.

"I want to spend the rest of my life for the socially weak people, Yeon went on. "That is why I founded NASN"

He established the National Alliance for Saving Nations (NASN) March 1, 2015 with the participation of various social and civic groups.

Before he founded NASN he and his reform-minded friends had to spend decades in their patriotic activities.

Yeon's organization is now boasting of 300 regular members, who are the leaders of the smaller civic groups.

Prior to the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic Yeon and his members used to gather at least once a week, discussing their plans and strategies for their protests and demonstrations.

"However, in actuality there have been only a few of the cases in which judges or prosecutors were punished for their misdeeds" Yeon added. "The current laws have to be repealed"

Yeon explained that unfair trials and manipulation of investigations by prosecutors and judges brought forth a number of victims, inflicting huge damages on them and their families.

"Unfortunately there is no place to solve the problems or damages," Yeon said. "That is why we have to do this"

Yeon added that he and his members often host a seminar at his office to share all the information on social, legal, and political victims.

"I will keep allying myself with other civic groups for the unified struggle," Yeon said. "We will get rid of social and political corruptions for a just world"
