After the September 11th terrorist attacks, korean people are worried about that terror attacks may be organized and executed against unspecified persons.
But most of the people do not trust counter- terrorism measures arranged by the government. They feel necessity for the Anti-Terrorism Act and the far-reaching responsible for all the issues associated with terrorism. The reality we face drives us to enact the Anti-Terrorism Act.
Finally, both the ruling and opposition parties push forward with a bipartisan initiative of passing another bill of the Anti-Terrorism Act from July to November 2004. Again, we must check whether the bill is either a bad law infringing on human rights or necessary to protect the people from terror attacks.
