Among the accused whose identities have been made public, Jeon, a 38-year-old company worker known as Watchman, had received a suspended sentence for pornography distribution in the past. But his sentence was put on hold after his name appeared in the list of accused in the Nth Room case and he is under further probe.
First of its Kind Decision in South Korea
The first face of the accused was made public by the Seoul Broadcasting System on March 23, 2020, when it revealed Cho Joo Bin aka Baksa's identity. Following this, Personal Information Disclosure Review Committee of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency also took a decision and disclosed his identity officially on March 24.
This was the first ever case in South Korea where the identity of the sexual criminal was made public. The decision was taken after carefully considering Article 25 of the Act on Special Cases Concerning the Punishment of Sexual Crimes.
Following the public outcry, the Supreme Court of South Korea too announced that it was working on the rule to give harsher punishments to those accused in the digital sex crimes. Currently, the number of victims of the sexual crimes in the Nth Room is said to be 103 including 26 minors.
