RoK Response to DMZ Crosser Revealed as Boondoogle 

“According to the interim results of the 22nd Infantry Division’s investigation into the border crossing, which the Joint Chiefs of Staff released on Wednesday, security cameras at a general outpost under the control of the division recorded five separate scenes of the man scrambling over the barbed wire fence, but soldiers monitoring the cameras failed to take notice.”

The crosser — who defected across the ‘Z from the North some time ago and was returning — activated warning lights and a siren, but the RoK team sent to investigated failed to detect footprints in the snow or white down from the man’s coat atop the wire.

A senior general has apologized and South Korea’s president is calling for improvements.
