Jeon Joo-hwan, who has a passing history as a certified public accountant, joined Seoul Transportation Corporation, a public corporation, in 2018.
He then worked as a train station worker in Bulgwang Station for three years.
However, in October of last year, he was arrested by the police on charges of forcing a victim to have a relationship with a station worker who was his motive for joining the company and even illegally filming, and received a ‘removal of his position’.
Jeon Joo-hwan, who was on trial after being charged with stalking, visited the victim on the 14th, one day before his sentencing, and wielded his weapon.

“I’m just sorry.”
The Personal Information Disclosure Committee said, “The seriousness and cruelty of crimes, such as the brutal killing of victims in public places planned in advance, are recognized.”
He added, “There is enough evidence, including that Jeon admits to the crime and an arrest warrant is issued, and we have also considered preventing stalking.

“I take a deep responsibility for the failure to protect the lives and bodies of the people. I will try to find a way for both organizations to actively cooperate.”
The police have decided to investigate all stalking cases across the country. From cases currently under investigation to cases that have already been investigated.
In addition, he said that he would take measures to preemptively separate the perpetrators from the victims. By actively applying measures such as detention in detention facilities for the perpetrators.
