Ahn, a former prosecutor with 27 years of experience who served as a judge at the Constitutional Court from September 2012 to September 2018, will advise on criminal cases.
Cases he reviewed include the impeachment trial of former President Park Geun-hye, the dissolution trial of the left-leaning Unified Progressive Party, the removal of adultery as a crime and the adoption of conscientious objection.
Ahn began his public service at the Seoul Central District Prosecutors Office in 1985 and also worked at the justice ministry.
He headed the Daejeon District Prosecutors’ Office, Gwangju High Prosecutors’ Office and Seoul High Prosecutors’ Office, during which time he handled major corruption investigations.
The law firm said Ahn is expected to advise on a wide range of cases including labor, serious disasters, elections, constitutional litigation, legislation and North Korea.Internet Explorer Channel Network
