|(Jeong Ki-hoon/The Labor Today)|
Han Sang-gyun, former president of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions(KCTU), will be released from prison on parole on May 21, six months earlier than his jail term of three years.
According to the labor circle on May 17, the Ministry of Justice recently decided to release Han Sang-gyun from prison on parole. Han Sang-gyun was sentenced to three years in jail by the court under the former President Park Geun-hye for leading a mass anti-government rally and a rally to commemorate the first anniversary of the Sewol ferry sinking in November 2015. He was sentenced to three years' imprisonment for the violations of traffic law and assembly and demonstration law.
A KCTU official said that "We understand that on May 18 the Ministry of Justice would make an official announcement on the decision to set former KCTU president Han Sang-gyun free on parole. And we will explain our position, following the announcement of the Ministry of Justice."
