Korean cult leaders - Here comes again
Hey! It's Korean cult again! I was so stunned to see the newspaper yesterday because Korean cult leaders have been revealed one after another. Japanese Police has placed Jung Myung Suk (鄭 明析(61)) on the wanted list 2006 who founded a religious group called "Setsuri" or "Morning star" in 1980s. (I wrote 'he was arrested' last week, but I had someone who pointed out that was a mistake. I appreciate it and erased the wrong part.) Indicted for rapes by Seoul, he has been on the lam to Japan since 1999. The action of police in Japan was after his over 100 cases of repeated rapes on his believers. The news also reported that he commited a number of rapes also in Taiwan and Italy against Taiwanese and Western women.
This incident reminded me of a similar incident by a clergyman, Kim Tamotsu (金 保(62)) because they are Korean although Kim is zainichi(Korean born in Japan). This news of his arrest was brought last year, causing over 30 victims including female children until 2005. Starting from raping adult women since 1991, he gradually shifted his sexual interest to children. After raping, he imposed silence on the young casualties with a simple threat, "open mouth and you deceive god." He even lures children into his house for atopy curing with his "god hands" at times.
I want to remind you that the leader of SGI (Soka Gakkai International with a zainichi leader) was accused of a rape at court in 1996. I'm not sure what was the verdict, but ordinarily speaking, Korean religions are somewhat dangerous.
A funny thing is that no mass media directly tells that Korean cults are dangerous. TV programs or newspapers are very talkative and aggressive to other foreigners' crimes such as a rape a men from Peru committing on a child last year. If you'd suspect this is because of zainichi's power on mass media, I'd say you are now very acquainted.
