Prosecutors are seeking a 20-year prison term for a leftist lawmaker accused of conspiring to overthrow the government.
At the Suwon District Court on Monday, prosecutors said in their closing statement that Unified Progressive Party lawmaker Lee Seok-ki should be sentenced to 20 years in prison and demanded that he be stripped of his right to be a lawmaker for 10 years following his release from prison.
Lee is accused of leading a pro-North Korea group called the "Revolutionary Organization,"
plotting to overthrow the government in the event of an inter-Korean war and trying to establish a socialist country.
He has consistently denied the accusations.
