Mafia of the Law
Morning of August 30, 2012.
Like any other day, the main character, Park Dal-pang is keeping himself busy in the office, organizing papers and attending to his duties as an agent for study-abroad!
The staff is also answering phone calls while taking care of various tasks.
In the meantime, the presidential office is agonizing over the news on the incident of the president’s private residence(Naegokdong) that seriously involves the current president just ahead of the 18th presidential election. They are urgently and desperately discussing the matter of hiding the countless corruptions the head of this country has engaged in.
At the Incheon District Prosecutors' Office, where the political dogs of political power gathered, a large-scale investigative headquarter consisting of about 50 people including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Criminal Affairs, and Special Inspection Department is installed under Jin Kyung-joon's command.
In particular, an operation begins to cover up the special investigation on the purchase of the Naegok-dong house that will be resided in after the resignation of the president.
The operation is named the “Unjust Foreign School Admission”
A week later, out of the blue, prosecutors storm into Dal-pang’s office, carrying arrest and seizure warrants on charges of forgery.
He is arrested for the crime of counterfeiting documents without any prior notice and is sent to the Incheon District Prosecutor's Office.
Dal-pang, who has nothing to do with them, is taken to the Incheon District Prosecutor's Office.
The prosecutor sways Dal-pang, promising to reduce his 5-year imprisonment to 1 year and release him without a tax audit if he were to give a testimony that he schemed with parents and forged the customer’s passport.
However, Dal-pang refuses.
Despite all kinds of torture from political investigators, he persists without making false confessions. He finally gets his first trial for counterfeiting documents but is yet to realize that the legal circle was one big party to a plot.
In the first trial, the judge and lawyer blatantly take the prosecutor’s side.
After all, Dal-pang is sentenced to two years and six months in jail for obstructing business although he is innocent with no evidence of forgery to be found anywhere.
The prosecutor thinks he’s being defiant and moves him from an economic criminal’s room to a violent’s room.
Unluckily, a gangster who notices him writing letters in the detention room informs the investigation prosecutor of the act and Dal-pang is once again dragged to the examination room.
The prosecution has a celebration at a large bar in Gangnam when the case is over.
In the presidential election, they exalt themselves for seizing a perfect victory since the case was won just as they had expected and all of the defendants were arrested and sentenced in trial.
They spend a night of frenzy and drink the cup of toast with the waitress and the girl.
After two years and six months, Dal-pang is out and ready for reconsideration, but no agency is willing to help him.
One day, he watches TV and coincidentally sees the judges of the Incheon District Prosecutor's Office, Inspector General, and Inspector General of Incheon District Court, all who investigated him, get arrested for bribery.
"The law of this country is not fair," says the people.
When the Chief of Civil Affairs escapes the law, being called a slippery fellow, the angry people flock to the square of Gwanghwamun, insisting on investigation and impeachment with candlelight protests.
Dal-pang files a suit against the prosecutor and investigation officers who committed corruption, pleading for punishment, but the investigative authorities turn a deaf ear to him.
Dal-pang cries out in Gwanghwamun Square, asking for the establishment of an apparatus that can punish corruption by the lawless judicial officers and high officials, announcing that the investigation and punishment of the state power are not executed properly and cannot be appealed.
Even after the change of regime, political prosecutors stay silent.
Dalpang decides to avenge himself and digs up information.
Will Dalpang be able to vindicate his innocence at last?
