Korean Kimchi maker will file a group lawsuit.

I wrote "Kimchi Panic" in this blog. Please see the article before read this article.

This article is summary of in Japanese)
I summarize and translate it to English.

(From Seoul)
Kimchi Makers are devastated because the Korean goverment make a annoucement which parasitic insect are found in Korean Kimchi.

The head of Korean Foresty Export Assosiation announced following comment.
Korean kimchi which export to Japan decreace to 50%. Because the governmnet annouce parasitic worm thoughtlessly.

Kimchi export makers will sue the Korean government if the government make reparation for decrease of Kimchi's export

I can not understand their idea. It seems that Kimchi maker transfer to responsiblity to their government.
I thinkwhat Korean kimch makers need is inprovement for Kimchi's sanitary condition, not lawsuit.

 韓国農林食品輸出組合のコ・ジェガプ専務は「現在、企業別に被害金額と状況を集計している。訴訟額は40億ウォ ン前後と見込んでいる」と話した。企業関係者は「日本に輸出している韓国キムチの販売量が発表前と比べて50%以上も激減し、ほとんどの企業は工場の稼働 率が20~30%に落ち込んだ」と述べた。さらに、「寄生虫の卵の検査結果を発表する際には、法的根拠と人体への有害性を明確に提示しなければならないに もかかわらず、政府は漠然とした憶測だけで発表し、国民をはじめ海外の消費者らにまで不安感を与えた」と指摘した。
