A low-trust society

A 25-year-old man surnamed Choi beat and raped his girlfriend in Cheongju, North Chungcheong Province, in July last year after she demanded they break up. When he faced police investigation, Choi's mother, 50, hurt his son with a stone to make it look as though his girlfriend had hit him and provoked the attack. She then made him sue his girlfriend.

Both Choi and his mother surnamed Chun were recently convicted of making false accusations, with Choi also found guilty of raping and injuring his girlfriend. The court said Chun's act was more malicious than her son's.

Also in Cheongju, a 77-year-old man has been imprisoned four times for making 118 claims based on fabricated statements since 2000.

In April 2010, a woman in her 50s in Busan was sentenced to a year and four months in jail and a fine of 3 million won (US$2,850) for a dozen false accusations including some against a prosecutor and a judge.
