Korean environmental groups sue for U.S. base data Activists allege pollution at sites being returned to South Korea

CAMP RED CLOUD, South Korea — Two groups have filed a lawsuit against the South Korean Ministry of Environment to gain the release of pollution data from U.S. military bases scheduled to be returned to South Korea.
Green Korea and the Chuncheon Civic Group claim in a lawsuit filed earlier this month that the October 2005 data, some of which was acquired by a Seoul newspaper and debated in the national assembly, is of overriding interest to the nation’s citizens.
U.S. Forces Korea refused to release any environmental data to Stars and Stripes, stating that the status of forces agreement between the United States and South Korea prevents it.
