S.Korea dismisses Kaesong workers’ protests for compensation: local media

None of the KIC workers have received any compensation yet, former Kaesong employee says

The Kaesong Industrial Complex (KIC)’s South Korean workers rallied on Wednesday to request that the government pass a special law to compensate them for their lost properties following North Korea’s liquidation of South Korean assets in the area.

However, on the day following the rally, Seoul's Ministry of Unification (MoU) turned down their request, stating that the law's enactment “may arouse unnecessary disputes," Yonhap News Agency reported on Thursday.
