Recently, the Controversy is growing because the Airborne Service has conducted inquiries on the cell phone communication of reporters and politicians. However, it was confirmed that the military prosecutors conducted correspondence inquiry against civilians such as lawyers and reporters.

This is the exclusive report by Kim Tae-hoon, a reporter specializing in defense.

This is a confirmation of communication data provision issued by SK Telecom.

At the request of the Ministry of National Defense Prosecutor’s Office, it is said that on July 6, he provided not only the name and phone number of a specific person, but also the resident registration number, address, and date of registration and cancellation.

It was confirmed that the target of the inquiry was a civilian lawyer, not a military person.

The reason for the request was an investigation by a military investigative agency or a provision of the law ‘collecting information to prevent harm to national security’.

At that time, an investigation into the sexual assault and death of Sgt. Lee Ye-ram, a high school Air Force Sergeant, was in progress, and the lawyer is a lawyer for the Air Force Public Service, who is accused of abusing his authority to acquire the recordings related to this sergeant.

In addition to this lawyer, the Ministry of National Defense Prosecutor’s Office is also confirmed to have inquired communication data of reporters who went to the Ministry of National Defense who spoke to the public affairs officer.

It is a separate matter from sexual harassment and secondary persecution, which are the essence of the case, and obtained information from civilians.

The Prosecutor’s Office of the Ministry of National Defense said in an interview with SBS, “The public affairs officer who was indicted has checked the communication data of those who have been on the phone for four months from March to June.”

The position is that it is an unavoidable measure in the investigation to identify the callee.

The Ministry of National Defense Prosecutor’s Office has inquired several correspondence data, and has not responded to how they are managing the personal information obtained in this way.
