President Moon Jae-in opposes to homosexuality and conducts ‘gay witch-hunt’ in military

 

Dozens arrested as South Korean military conducts ‘gay witch-hunt’June 12, 2017

Amnesty has called on Seoul to “repeal this archaic and discriminatory provision in the military criminal code,” criticizing the government for being slow to protect the rights of sexual minorities within the country.
During the recent election campaign, now President Moon Jae-in drew intense criticism from LGBT groups after he said he was “opposed” to homosexuality in a televised debate.
Days later he walked that back slightly, saying that it was “still a little early to allow homosexuality within the military” on the ground that South Korean society was not ready for it. He has not broached the subject since being sworn in.

Whatever.
