South Korean lawmakers vote to lift opposition leader’s immunity against arrest

  • South Korea's opposition leader, Lee Jae-myung, is facing potential arrest on corruption charges. He is accused of giving illegal favors to a property investor in exchange for kickbacks during his time as mayor and of transferring funds to North Korea to facilitate an economic exchange scheme.
  • Lee's hunger strike has garnered support and prevented lawmakers from crossing party lines to vote for his arrest. The opposition-controlled parliament unexpectedly voted in favor of allowing prosecutors to issue an arrest warrant against Lee, who denies all charges.
  • In addition, Prime Minister Han Duck-soo was dismissed due to various policy failures. These include the inadequate response to heavy rains and flooding, the deadly Halloween crush, and criticism over the World Scout Jamboree.
