Some provisions of the revised version will be effective on December 10THandtherestwillbeginfromApril10th,2010. Provisions effect...

Since the Korean government began the intensified crackdown on October 12th, the immigration raid has been taking place almost everyday.

The immigration even raided a Nepalese restaurant without the ow...
