AAJA-Asia will host a debate with Samsung officials and leukemia victims at 10am on Feb 16 (Tuesday) over the disputed workplace safety of semiconductor plants. It will be the first time for Samsung to confront leukemia victims in front of the media for a debate.
Baik Soo-ha, a vice president at Samsung, and Samsung spokesman Kim Sun-beom will attend the rare event as speakers along with four victims that have spearheaded negotiations with the world’s largest memory chip maker.
Samsung has officially declared it has officially completed its negotiations with victims over the compensation, an apology and preventive measures but some of the victims disagree. The event will take place at the office of Newsbacker, a crowdfunding platform for journalism, in Insadong, Jongno. English interpretation will be available.
