Benedictines call for investigation
Share this article :

Benedictine groups have joined in the calls for an investigation into alleged dumping of Agent Orange to be transparent. Religious of the Order of St. Benedict Waegwan Abbey joined a protest rally yesterday, urging thorough investigation of a US TV report which alleged American forces dumped Vietnam-war era defoliant at Camp Carroll base in Chilgok, Gyeongsangbuk-do province in 1978. South Korean and the US governments recently agreed to launch a joint investigation into the allegation but Benedictine Father Isaac Koh said it should include non-governmental experts to ensure transparency, echoing Reverend Yang Jae-sung, secretary general of the Korea Christian Environmental Movement Solidarity.
