Jeong Yeon-guk, the last spokesman for the Blue House under the Park Geun-hye administration, has been charged with assaulting a female firefighter. According to the report on the 11th, the 3rd criminal division of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office (Chief Jeong-sik Seo) indicted the former spokesman without detention on the 20th of last month for violating the Basic Law on Firefighting. Former spokesman Jung is accused of assaulting a female firefighter at the Seocho Fire Station in Seoul in February. At the time, he was reported to have slapped a firefighter in the face while intoxicated. The Framework Act on Firefighting stipulates that a person who obstructs firefighting or first aid activities by assaulting or intimidating firefighters on the spot shall be punished by imprisonment with labor for not more than five years or by a fine not exceeding 50 million won. Former spokesperson Jeong (MBC) was a reporter and served as the spokesperson for the Blue House from October 2015 to May 2017. By Kang Jae-gu, staff reporter [email protected]
