The pro-democracy civic group memebers gatherd on July 20, 2015 in front of the Prosecutors' Office in Seoul's Seocho-dong area to criticize the Supreme Court's failure to confirm the lower court's decision.
They said that the prosecution just turned into the waiting maid of the power. They also argued that Won is responsible for the influencing the previous presidential election as the chief of National Intelligence Service (NIS).
NIS chief Won was indicted for his "illegal" use of power in the last presidentional election in which current President Park Geun-Hye was elected president.
Won was serving his three-year jail term for his illegal involvement in politics and in the presidential election.
The Supreme Court failed to confirm the lower court's decision and decided to send it back to the lower court, touch off a series of protests among the democratic-minded civic groups in the nation, they argued.
As NIS chief, Won was blamed for making his office workers to write "favorable postings" on the internet, influencing the last presidential election in favor of the current President Park.
Won was appointed NIS chief under ex-President Lee Myung-Bak.
