Supreme Court Chief Justice Yang Sung-tae offered a public apology Tuesday over the latest corruption scandal involving a senior judge.
"Representing the judiciary, I apologize for causing public concern, and pledge to take stern measures according to the findings of the investigation," Yang said.
He made the remarks prior to an emergency meeting with local court chiefs at the Supreme Court in southern Seoul, Tuesday. The meeting was convened to discuss measures aimed at rooting out corruption in the judiciary.
