Hongseong’s response to our e-People petition (12/24/2022)

Application No.: 1AA-2212-0489422
Application Date: 2022-12-16
Hongseong, South Korea, Shut down illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, markets, and restaurants.
홍성군은 불법 개농장, 도축장, 시장, 보신탕집을 폐쇄하라!

Hongseong County refuses to respond to our petition, claiming they are not obligated to respond to a petition from a foreigner with a foreign address. Their response is not based on fact. Korea’s Civil Petitions Treatment Act which governs civil petition processing does not state that foreigners in foreign countries are excluded from filing petitions to the Korean government using the e-People petition site. On 12/31/2022, we filed an e-People petition for the dereliction of duty by Hongseong County to respond to our petition.

South Korea’s horrific dog meat industry. Cruelty during transport.
