2. Prosecution reopens Jang Ja-yeon sexual abuse case (6일자 3면)

기사 요약: 검찰이 9년 전에 종결된 여배우 장자연 성상납 의혹 케이스에 대한 재수사를 착수하겠다고 발표했다.

[1] The prosecution said Tuesday it is reinvestigating the controversial sexual abuse case involving the late actress Jang Ja-yeon. The initial investigation into the case concluded nine years ago amid criticism that it failed to punish any of the alleged suspects.

* special independent panel: 특별 수사팀 (독립적인 합의체)
