I’m slowly losing faith in the justice system in Korea. What with the controversial decisions being handed down by its courts – the Hebei Spirit case and the suspended sentences on two men who raped their kin among others. And now, a husband who was divorced without his knowledge and a Vietnamese woman who was denied of her rights as a mother. I wouldn’t blame anyone who would doubt the credibility of the judges in those cases.
The case of the Vietnamese mother isn’t new to me. I had heard of a similar case before but that one didn’t end up in court. Taking away a child from a mother isn’t humane eventhough there are some mothers who would abandon their kids so they could remmary. Asking the court’s intervention shows how much the Vietnamese mother wanted her children.
Granted that the Vietnamese married to probably have a better life in Korea, what her supposed husband did to her is truly unfair since it’s also possible that she’s willing to fulfill her marital obligations. He on the other hand, based on what was written, purposely used her.
