Sex crime chat room ignites public fury in South Korea

Source: Yonhap News Agency

SEOUL, March 23 (Yonhap) -- More than 2 million people have signed an online petition as of Monday demanding the government unveil the identity of a man who allegedly ran a group chat room where photos and videos of violent sex acts, involving underaged victims, were distributed.

At least 74 victims are known to have been exploited in the so-called Nth room case, in which a man surnamed Cho allegedly lured victims into taking naked photos and later threatened and exploited them into more gruesome sex acts.

Cho, who used the nickname "baksa," which means "doctor" or "guru" in Korean, is accused of distributing the videos in a group chat room on the messaging service Telegram, where at least 10,000 users are suspected of paying Cho to watch the videos.

Police have so far tracked down 124 people in relation to the case, including Cho and 17 others who have been formally detained. The user who is suspected of first creating the chat room, however, still remains at large.

Wuhan Residents Take 'Zero Cases' Claim With Pinch of Salt

Source: Radio Free Asia

Wuhan resident Zhang Ruyi said public trust in the government is at a low ebb, because of attempts by local health officials to cover up the emergence of the new pathogen in December, partly by suppressing information and partly by classifying the surge of new cases as "pneumonia."

"It's funny, that," Zhang said, adding that he is highly skeptical of the claim. "They're not just lying now; they've been lying since the start, by classifying [COVID-19] cases under other diseases."

"There are 60 million people in Hubei, and they have all just been left to live or die without any help," he said. "It's basically down to a person's immune system."

"They are saying that only a few thousand died here in Wuhan, but does that sound right?"

Social media reports posted by volunteers showed that more than 20 patients were admitted to Wuhan Tongji Hospital on Wednesday alone with symptoms resembling COVID-19.

"There were more than 20 cases at Tongji today," one volunteer posted. "Wuhan hasn't dared to report them, because [local officials] are under [political] pressure."
