No one to win presidential pardons for upcoming holidays

Over at the presidential office…
President Park Geun-hye will not pardon ANYONE during the upcoming holiday season.
Senior presidential press secretary Lee Jung-hyun told reporters on Thursday… that he has
not heard of any plans for special presidential pardons.
In line with her commitment to bring a fair society, President Park had not given out
any pardons to mark Liberation Day earlier this year.
While Korean pesidents have often issued pardons to commemorate national holidays in the past,…
Park promised… during last year’s presidential election campaign… that she would exercise
the right in strict manner.
