[Breaking News] No Prison Sentence for Boiling Alive 600 Cats!!
This is update on the case “600 Stray Cats Boiled Alive”.
Chung OO, who was charged in May of 2015 for capturing and boiling alive 600 stray cats which were sold to the “health food centers”, was sentenced to 10 months imprisonment, 2 years probation and 80 hours of community service on April 6, 2016 by Changwon District Court. However, in Korea Chung OO will not be going to prison, and will only serve time if he commits the same criminal act within the 2 year probation period. Only then, will he go to prison for 10 months plus the sentence for any new crime he commits. This is a slap on the wrist for such horrendous cruelty and the violation of the Animal Protection Act.
To protest this outrageous sentence and ask for an appeal of the sentencing, on April 11, Busan Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Busan KAPCA) and Korean Animal Welfare Association (KAWA) held a protest and a press conference in front of the Changwon Supreme Prosecutors’ Office , but were unable to meet with the prosecutor. They plan to continue protests through a one person relay protest in front of the Changwon Supreme Prosecutors’ Office.
