Korean Politician Hospitalized After Fasting in Protest of Japan’s Water Release

The Korean politician Lee Jae-myung, who went on a hunger strike to protest Japan’s release of treated water from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, has been hospitalized several weeks after he started fasting and has a warrant for his arrest.

The representative of South Korea’s largest opposition party has been fasting to protest the South Korean government’s response to the release of treated water, and he was hospitalized due to worsening health conditions.

The Korean politician began fasting at the end of August to send a message against the Yoon Suk Yeol administration, but his health took a turn for the worse on the 19th day of the hunger strike.

According to the democratic party, Representative Lee plans to continue fasting even in his hospital bed and will not eat or drink anything besides what he gets from the IV drip.

Prosecutors are reportedly investigating Lee Jae-myung on suspicion of being involved in illegally transferring funds to North Korea. An arrest warrant was filed on September 18th, and the ruling party has criticized Lee’s fasting as a way to buy time to delay judicial proceedings.
