Bereaved families gather to discuss Sewol-ho ferry bill
Bereaved families of the April ferry disaster victims are meeting as we speak to discuss whether to accept the Sewol-ho ferry bill long negotiated by rival parties.
They argue that the ruling Saenuri Party should not be allowed to select any of the investigative panel members.
The version of the bill agreed upon by parties yesterday says the ruling party must seek approval from the main opposition and families of the ferry victims.
They've also been demanding that the special committee tasked with unveiling the truth behind the April's ferry disaster have both investigative and prosecutorial powers.
However, the main opposition party's interim chief Park Young-sun, who is currently attending the meeting is trying to persuade bereaved families that another negotiation is unlikely to be pushed.
