Former lawmaker Yoo Seung-min said on Facebook on Nov 2nd, “I came to think once again that a fair world without gender discrimination is important. The idea of seeing all men as potential perpetrators should disappear,’ he wrote. “Sex crimes that destroy a person’s life should be severely punished, and for the same reason, false accusations that destroy a person’s life should also be severely punished,” he said.

Below is the full text of politician Yoo Seung-min posted on his Facebook.
Watching what happened between actor Kim Seon-ho and his ex-girlfriend, I came to think once again that a fair world without gender discrimination is important. The idea of seeing all men as potential perpetrators should disappear.
We must uphold the principle of presumption of innocence. Sex crimes that destroy a person’s life should be severely punished, and false accusations for the same reason that destroy a person’s life should also be severely punished.
It becomes a fair world only when the constitutional spirit that all citizens are equal before the law is protected.Yoo Seung-min
