Han Young-su (60) and Kim Pil-won (67), co-authors of “White Paper on Fraudulent Election” written about December 2012’s South Korean presidential election, have been arrested Friday, according to a local media report.
The Seoul Central District Court has issued an arrest warrant for these 2 people, saying that they had undermined the reputation of the officers of the National Election Commission (NEC) by providing false information about the officers in their book.
The eight officers from the NEC filed a suit last October against Mr. Han and Mr. Kim, claiming that these two had undermined the reputation of the officers of the NEC by giving false statements in their book that the NEC was involved in the fraudulent election and its concealment.

The police have already sent the case to the prosecutors with no charges. However, the prosecutors then requested an arrest warrant, claiming that the book constitutes the defamation of the NEC officers since it falsely describes some officers having admitted wrongdoings during the election process.
“White Paper” has been banned from being sold or advertised about since last January when the court accepted the request for injunction from the NEC.
Han and Kim filed in January 2013 for a nullity suit for the 2012 presidential election for no hand counts having been performed in ballot counting and for the fact that there was the interference with the election by state agencies. No trial date has yet been set as of today. As a general rule the court is supposed to make its ruling within 6 months of the election if there is any suit against it.
