Emotional get-together of tax agency workers from Korea and Japan

On August 19, two Korean workers were invited to the 70th general annual meeting of the Japan Tax Agency Workers Union. The two were Kim Dong-il, who works in the Korean Tax Agency, and Kim Dae-yeol from the National Government Workers Union. Kim Dong-il was dismissed in May 2009 for criticizing the arbitrary tax investigation, which is said to be the cause of Roh Moo-hyun ex-President. Kim took his case to the court to “let the people know what they ought to know”. After 30 months struggle in the court, he was able to get a withdrawal of the dismissal from the Supreme Court in November 2011 and was reinstated at the Naju Tax Office the following December.
