The Constitutional Court plans to rule this week on whether to endorse or reject the National Assembly's impeachment of Interior Minister Lee Sang-min over last year's deadly Itaewon crowd crush.
The court will deliver its decision on Tuesday, more than five months after Lee was impeached on Feb. 8 for mishandling the crowd crush that left 159 people killed in Seoul's popular nightlife district of Itaewon on Oct. 29 last year.
Upon the impeachment, Lee was suspended from duties as minister.
Should the court endorse the impeachment, Lee will be removed from office, but he will be reinstated if the court rejects the impeachment. (Yonhap)
