The ruling Saenuri Party has vowed to pass
a bill… requiring that security cameras be installed at daycare centers nationwide…
at the Assembly′s April extraordinary sesison. Public demand for the legislation grew…
following a string of child abuse cases at daycare centers in recent months.
Last week, lawmakers voted down a law revision proposal that included the surveillance camera
requirement. Lawmakers who bjected to the bill say… it
would be a violation of their privacy and infringe on daycare teachers′ rights
The ruling party says… it will rework the bill to address the privacy concerns… and
re-introduce it during next month′s session.
