ABSTRACT

This study is about Command Responsibility applied to commanders and chiefs in charge of handling various critical Military situations at wartime and peacetime. When the various critical situations occur such as Cheonan warship attack, Yeonpyeongdo attack, GP massacre, and the civilian fence crossing to North, the commanders and chiefs related to the situations are punished based on the results of investigation; criminal penalty, being discharged, and so on. At that time, the commanders are asked “Command Responsibility”. However, a lot of commanders think that the Command Responsibility asked to them is applied differentially depending on the inclination of the commander and sometimes randomly applied. Thus, some commanders even think that they have a disadvantage. In this study, the case of Director of Operations of Joint Chiefs of Staff at the time of Cheonan warship attack, is analyzed based on the audit results from the Board of Audit and Inspection and Ministry of Defense, the precedents of Supreme Court, and regulations of Ministry of Defense and the Headquarter of the Army. This analysis will provide a better direction of Command Responsibility not only in future cases of Military events but also for Police and Fire department.
