How can you do this to me when I am the one who fed this family?

While the nation was shocked by the news, one of Park Soo Hong’s closest friends, singer Son Heon Soo, lambasted prosecutors, stating that all of this could’ve been prevented if prosecutors had taken Park Soo Hong’s requests for safety more seriously.

On October 4, Son Heon Soo uploaded to his Instagram his grievances about the way prosecutors were handling the case.

The prosecutor handling this case has changed six times. Each time, they ask the same questions and investigate as if Park Soo Hong is the criminal while demanding he present evidence himself. Despite the amount of evidence already present, they demanded a deposition while stating the accused must also have their say. Park Soo Hong asked for security due to fear his father would attack him, but he was ignored. I can understand why so many victims end their life during investigations. Why is our country so cruel to the victims?
