The CBCK Committee for Justice & Peace (President: Most Rev. Matthias Ri Iong-hoon) issued a statement as of September 30, 2013 on the controversial construction of 762kv high-tension electric power transmission towers in Milyang, South Gyeongsang Province. Now there is a conflict between the government and the villagers because of the construction of the tower despite the strong protest of the villagers. There seems to be a lack of communication between the government and the villagers. In this regard, the CBCK Committee for Justice & Peace has asked both parties to strike a deal and find the best way to solve the problem.

 

In this statement, the committee asked again that both parties solve the problem with dialogue. As most of the villagers are elderly, there is a possibility that they will be in a very serious situation both physically and mentally. However, the government is trying to continue the construction with the help of a police force of 3,000 policemen. Some villagers are trying to obstruct the construction even at the risk of their lives. In its statement the CBCK Committee for Justice & Peace promised the villagers it would do its best to protect them.
