Gov't to expand its supervision on ferriesUpdated: 2014-05-09 AM 6:27:55 (KST)
In the wake of this awful tradegy, the government has announced a series of much stricter regulations to ensure the safety of passenger ferries operating in Korea.
The Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries says it will expand an ordinance that was limited to only cargo vessels and foreign ships to include passenger ferries that have routes in Korean waters, within the next six months.
The measure passed the National Assembly late last month.
