President Park calls for other ways to track down suspected ferry owner Updated: 2014-06-10 14:10:35 KST

Now, with regard to the weeks-long manhunt for the owner of the sunken Sewol-ho ferry, President Park Geun-hye just cannot understand why it is taking so long for authorities to capture the billionaire on the run.
During a Cabinet meeting today the president urged the nation's prosecution and police to review their means to arrest Yoo Byung-eun and to seek other ways of locating the fugitive.
Humbly accepting the outcome of last week's local elections, the Korean leader said the government should do its best to eliminate ill practices in society to make Korea a safer place to live.
President Park added that a focus should now also be on reviving the economy.
This by encouraging consumers to start spending again.
