Corresponding media in Korea April 2006:April 17 2006 Daum news (translation from Korean)
April 17, 2006At the Exodus meeting held on the morning of the 17th, former/withdrawn JMS followers publicized the evidential documents and pictures regarding the systematic sexual crimes of female followers by Jung Myung-suk. According to their publicized evidence, it included evidential photos with swimsuit clad middle school and high school girls ranging from age 16 to 28. Moreover, a description of these girls’ age, height and background were included along with a brief introduction of them, sent together to the religious leader. According to those on Exodus’s side, “The pictures of the leaders of JMS are tall, pretty, young middle school, high school girls…(these pictures) were then sent to the religious leader Jung Myung-suk to see,” and, “The problem is that these sex crimes cannot simply be blamed on JMS leader Jung Myung-suk (he is not the only one who engaged in these crimes), but in order to gain the likes of their religious leader, the followers choose tall, pretty and young female victims as ‘sexual gifts’,” they reported. Moreover, “After looking at the photos, (Jung Myung-suk) systematically goes through a process of choosing the girls from the photos that pleases him and calls upon (these girls) from overseas to rape them,” they reported. Furthermore they report, “There are several photos, letters and documents sent to these girls by Jung Myung-suk regarding the molestations that serves as definite proof,” and they stressed that, “These are only the cases discovered (there are probably so much more yet to be found).”“These documents and photos provides further progress in the current civil/criminal suits faced against JMS religious leader Jung Myung-suk,” they illustrated. A JMS affiliate illustrated, “You need to see and confirm the truth (for yourself)” and “This is a chance for the Exodus side to legally confront them.”A JMS affiliate recently in response to the news about JMS responded, “The atmosphere within the religious organization has been really exasperated,” and “I cannot understand how to deal with this kind of situation.”He said, “The media report regarding the JMS scandal is causing a snowball effect among believers.”Moreover, he added, “In response to the media report this time, the religious leader Jung Myung-suk did not have anything to say.”
