[The Hill] South Korea military appealing ruling in transgender soldier's case

작성일: 2021-10-22조회: 18

Now the military has said that it plans to appeal the court's decision, The Associated Press reported. The South Korean Defense Ministry said that while it respects the court's decision earlier this month, it would still allow the army to appeal the ruling. Per South Korean laws, the filing must be approved by the Justice Ministry.

When reached for comment by the AP, the Justice Ministry said it would make a decision on the appeal soon after reviewing legal issues and the aspects surrounding the case.

Cho Kyu-suk, an activist with the Center for Military Human Rights Korea, told the AP, "The government may appeal, but our position is that they must not do so because that’s the attitude the government must have in the democratic society."
