Irene Khan, a special reporter for freedom of expression of opinion, sent a letter to the Korean government on the 27th of last month recommending a revision to the Press Arbitration Act, which is being discussed in the National Assembly.

The letter was delivered to related ministries such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism through the United Nations' highest human rights representative office and the Geneva Korean delegation, and although there is no legal obligation to answer the letter, it was customary to give official answers.

Khan, a special reporter, said, "The intention of the authorities to pursue the revised law is to solidify trust in the media, but if the revised law is adopted without revising it, it could face opposition."

He also mentioned that he would like to pay attention to my opinions and concerns when considering the arbitration law based on international norms related to freedom of expression, and Article 19 of the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).
