• PARK SAYS FAMILY ‘ROOT CAUSE’ OF FERRY TRAGEDY

    0

    SEOUL: South Korean President Park Geun-Hye on Tuesday denounced fugitive members of the ship-owning family linked to last month’s ferry disaster, calling them the “root cause” of the tragedy that claimed around 300 lives. The government has offered a $500,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Yoo Byung-Eun, patriarch of the family behind Chonghaejin Marine Co. Chonghaejin owned and operated the 6,825-ton Sewol ferry that capsized and sank on April 16 with hundreds of high school students on board. Yoo and his eldest son have become the targets of a massive manhunt after they ignored prosecutors’ summons to surrender themselves for questioning.
