International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights

Each State Party to the present Covenant undertakes to respect and to ensure to all individuals within its territory and subject to its jurisdiction the rights recognized in the present Covenant, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.

My name is Jan Jung, and I am currently living in the United States. Most Koreans living in foreign countries keep their patriotism towards Korea. As an American citizen, I have been living in the United States for over 35 years, but still have a passionate love for my mother country, Korea.

The Parliament of the Republic of Korea illegally decided on December 9th, 2016 to impeach President Geun-hye Park for intentional political reasons. Parliament's impeachment decision violates Article 110 of the National Assembly Act because the vote was not divided and handled between 13 impeachment reasons, but was performed all together at once in a single day without evidence nor hearing by President Park. There is the judicial precedent of the case that the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Korea has ruled that the Constitutional Court's 1999 impeachment decision constitutes an unlawful impeachment decision (Decision of Constitutional Court, 1999 Heunma 139).

Currently, all Koreans are suffering psychological torture due to the illegal impeachment of the President. This impeachment incident is not merely a criminal issue for President Park, but a revolution of North Korean communists group in South Korea. The reason is that the procedure for impeachment is illegal in the National Assembly (Article 110 of the National Assembly Act). The Constitutional Court must compose of 9 judges. However the current Constitutional Court is composed of 8 judges because 1 judge had retired. In the case of the Constitutional Court, the judgment of 8 judges to impeach President Park is unconstitutional (Decision of Constitutional Court, 2012 Heunma 2). Furthermore, President Park Geun-hye did not commit a crime to give reason for impeachment as described in the Constitution.

It is also important to note that a six-month trial period, which is guaranteed by Article 38 of the Constitutional Court, was not given to President Park Geun-hye, as pointed out in the annexed documents. There was no allowance for further discussion of this injustice despite President Park's disapproval. This violates President Park's right to a fair trial and is a serious human rights violation. The Constitutional Court of Korea has severely violated Article 14 3 (b) of the Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. As a result, 116 Korean Americans have filed a petition to further investigate the unlawful decisions made against President Park Geun -hye.

The Constitutional Court of Korea is scheduled to sentence the decision of impeachment on March 13, 2017 as that is also the date that Judge Lee Jung-mi, the head of the Constitutional Court, is set to retire.

We truly hope that Amnesty has received our petition so that additional evidence of the Constitutional Court's allegations against Park Geun-hye can be verified as soon as possible. If Amnesty has received our petition, please confirm that Korea's Constitutional Court has violated Article 14, ③(b) of the Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. We hope that Amnesty will be able to deliver the findings quickly and notify international news media stations such as CNN. We will cover all the costs necessary for a proper decision. Please do not hesitate to send me any questions, and I will try to reply as soon as possible.

Sincerely, Jan Jung Joint Representative, World Korean Alliance Petition Paper

1. Petition Topic

Demand of confirmation of invalidation of impeachment proceedings of President Park Geun-hye of Republic of Korea 

2. Petition Details   

1) Date of petition:  March 6, 2017   

2) Petitioner:  Joint Representative of World Korean Alliance of KoreaJan Jung (1122 4th street #240, Santa Monica, CA 90403)    Chang G. Choe (4132 Parry Dr., Sarasota, FL 34241)        Ilok Hwang (H128 KLM plaza condo, 179 Jalandhar Bukit bintang, Kuala Lumpur 55100 Malaysia)  

3)  Purpose:  To appeal the invalidation of impeachment process due to a violation of the "International Political Freedom of the Citizen" (Art. 14③b) and "Korean Constitutional Court Law(Art. 38)  

3. The Process of impeachment trial of Park Geun-hye  

1)  The President of the Republic of Korea, Park Geun-hye was impeached by Korea Parliament on October 12, 2016 and this case was immediately sent to the the Constitutional Court. Thee impeachment proceedings are on going until March 6.    

2)  President Park recently appointed a special prosecutor November 30, 2016 to investigate the evidence of the impeachment decision of the National Assembly.

3)  The Constitutional Court is scheduled from December 22, 2016 until February 17, 17.  It examined as a total of 20 deliberation procedures.  As the final defense of the impeachment trial is confirmed, there is a greater possibility that a decision on impeachment trial (impeachment citation) will be issued before March 13.

4.  Unlawfulness of rapid hearing and violation of treaty in case of impeachment of President Park Geun-hye.  

1)  Lee Jung-mi, the trial commissioner of the Constitutional Court, said on February 22, 2017 that the witness hearing process is finished and that the final defense of the impeachment proceedings will be held on February 24.  

2)  President Park insisted that the deadline for interrogation of the witness is too fast, and requested the postponement of the witness earing in March 2017, but the Constitutional Court did not accept it.

3)  The Constitutional Court intends to finalize the impeachment judgment before the Constitutional Court chief Lee Jung-mi will resign on March 13, 2013. However, if the impeachment trial is made on March 13, 2013, the judgment will be made only three months after the impeachment day of the Republic of Korea Parliament (Dec. 9, 2016) It is illegal and invalid because the legal right of President Park can be infringed.

4)  "The Constitutional Court shall declare a final decision within 180 days of the receipt of the judgment" (Article 38 of the Constitutional Court of Republic of Korea Act (Period of Judgment). So rapid trial process without agreement of president Park can break that law and infringe the right of petitioner to get proper and just jurisdiction.

5)  By International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, crime suspects are presumed not guilty (Article 14 ②) and require a substantial period of protection. International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, Article 14 ③ B). In spite of President Park's request for renewal of the expiration date, the constitutional court did not accept her demand and terminated the hearing process early. This speedy trial process is invalid, because it violates the international treaty without fair reason.
