April 17, Yesterday Expert committee sat down to review the controversial case report on Samsung Electronics workplace after the company has pleaded the government to review if there are any environmental assessment report on semiconductor factories contain trade secrets that need protection from public disclosure. But the committee hasn’t reached out to any conclusion and push the delay button.
The committee members, including researchers and academics, failed to review the report. “The committee will meet again as soon as possible to examine the reports in-depth,” said an official from the ministry. Ministry of Employment and Labor set a new deadline to draw a conclusion on this matter before April 20.
