South Korean sect leader asks for forgiveness by kneeling in front of media for the spread of coronavirus

- Advertisment -

A sect leader in South Korea has seen kneeling in front of a bunch of media practitioners, asking for forgiveness for the spread of coronavirus.

Lee Man-hee is the leader of a secretive South Korean sect Shincheonji. It is linked to more than half the country’s over 4,000 coronavirus cases.

He asked for forgiveness after Seoul city authorities filed a murder complaint against him for failing to cooperate in containing the deadly virus.

Outside China, Korea has the largest coronavirus cases and its current case numbers are expected to rise further as authorities carry out checks on more than 266,000 people linked with the Schinchenji Church of Jesus.

“I would like to offer a sincere apology to the people. Although it was not intentional, many people have been affected. I seek the forgiveness of the people,” the 88-year-old sect leader said, bowing his head twice before the reporters in Gapyeong South Korea.
