New Bill Proposes Equal Upkeep For Tombs of Former Presidents

An opposition lawmaker has proposed a bill to ensure equal state support and treatment of tombs of former presidents whether or not they are buried in national cemeteries.

Representative Min Hong-chul of the main opposition Minjoo Party of Korea on Wednesday, presented a revision to the law regarding treatment of former presidents.

Currently, the country bears the costs of maintaining the burial sites of former presidents Rhee Syngman, Park Chung-hee, Kim Dae-jung and Kim Young-sam, all located in national cemeteries in Seoul and Daejeon, according to the law.

However, the tombs of former presidents Roh Moo-hyun and Yun Bo-seon are being managed by their families, at their own expense, as they were buried in Gimhae, South Gyeongsang Province and Asan, South Chungcheong Province, respectively.
