Dear South Korean Justice Secretary 

Recently, a 16-month-old baby named Jung - in died after being abused by her step-parents. According to Manila Bulletin (https://mb.com.ph/2021/01/04/korean-stars-outraged-after-16-month-old-baby-dies-of-suspected-abuse-by-adoptive-parents/ the baby died on October 13th 2020. The article describes how because of the abuse, shortly before her death, in a hospital emergency room it was noticed that "she [Jung - in] had bruises all over her body, her stomach was filled with blood, her major organs were damaged, and her arm and collarbone were fractured". A more detailed account, with the source linked here, will explain in more depth what happened (https://twitter.com/yutashome/status/1345775684875128834/photo/2 ) - the cover photo for this petition is also from this tweet. Korean TV channel SBS also aired an episode of "Unawnsered Questions" which discusses in even more depth the horrific situation. We are asking that Jung - in's step-parents are charged with manslaughter at least, possibly even murder and are detained until a trial can be given. The evidence is overwhelming, given the damage to her body prior to her death, that the parents physical abuse directly caused Jung - in's death. This poor innocent child deserves justice #justiceforbabyjeung-in and I am glad that Korean society, including the honourable Park Jimin are collectively saying #sorryjeungin - but words are not enough - Jung - In needs justice and charges of child abuse that are currently being proposed for the parents are not enough - these parents need to be charged with manslaughter at least and if they intended to kill the baby, murder - #kpopstanshelptheplanet 

Thanks

On October, 13 last year, a 16-month-old baby girl named Jeong In-Yang passed away. Later on, the adoptive parents of Jeong In-Yang were arrested by 'Seoul Yangcheon Police Department' but it was too late. The case was later unravelled to the public on an episode of 'Unanswered Questions'. The episode revealed that Jeong In-Yang suffered 271 days of abuse before her passing. A picture was shown to the viewers of Jeong-In Yang covered in bruises, the picture was taken from a daycare facility Jeong-In Yang often went to. The carer at the daycare reported suspicion of child abuse to the police. However, the case was dropped as the foster parents denied such accusations. This occurred multiple times from various people, and the police dismissed it every time. The police could've saved Jeong-In Yang if they would have acted sooner and investigated further, yet they chose to ignore Jeong-In Yang's cries and let her die at the hands of her foster parents. On the day Jeong-In Yang passed she was rushed to an emergency room with a ruptured pancreas. A medical professional featured in the episode of 'Unanswered Questions' and explained: "A ruptured pancreas, is without a question, a three on the AIS" (Abbreviated Injury scale that ranks injury severity). The foster parents told the police that they dropped Jeong-In Yang, however medical professionals say otherwise. Their statement is unlikely to be true — and that a significant amount of physical abuse (like an adult’s leaping on the abdomen) must have taken place for Jung In’s pancreas to rupture. Koreans have expressed their rage & frustration by creating petitions to help push the Korean government and legal system for heightened sentences against crimes involving children. Do your best for baby Jeong-In Yang and help prevent this from happening again, spread awareness and donate to child protection charities. Jeong-In Yang deserves justice.
