Korean prosecutors seeking to attack academic fraud?

from english.chosun: Prosecutors called for strict punishment, saying the academic fraud was “a historically significant case capable of ending a widespread practice where academics manipulate research results with impunity,” despite the fact that there is no precedent of legal punishment for academic fraud. Prosecutors cited the disappointment among the public, for whom Hwang was at one stage a national hero, among aggravating circumstances.

IPBiz: Wow!


But Kim Sun-jong, a former researcher at the MizMedi Hospital accused of misleading Hwang over stem cells from in-vitro fertilized eggs, was loudly booed when he took the stand, obliging the judge to halt proceedings several times.
