Lee Jae-myeong’s investigation is suspended for ‘health reasons’… Prosecution: “Notice of re-appearance on the 12th”

The prosecution, which summoned Lee Jae-myeong토토사이트, leader of the Democratic Party of Korea for questioning in connection with the ‘suspicion of Ssangbangwool Group remittances to North Korea’, concluded its investigation of the suspect in 7 hours at 6:40 pm on the 9th.

In a text message sent to reporters on the evening of the 9th, the Suwon District Prosecutors’ Office said, “We began investigating the suspect at 10:30 a.m., but stopped investigating the suspect at 6:40 p.m. after receiving a request from Representative Lee that he would not be investigated further due to his health. “I did it,” he said.

Suwon District Prosecutors’ Office Criminal Division 6 (Chief Prosecutor Kim Young-nam) conducted an investigation by selecting only the key points from the questionnaire originally prepared in 150 pages, considering the health status of CEO Lee, who was on his 10th day of fasting. The survey was conducted for 2 hours followed by a 20-minute break. The prosecution also deployed medical staff and an ambulance.

Representative Lee submitted an 8-page written statement completely denying the charges, and is said to have replaced most of his answers with the statement. To some questions, he gave answers on two pages of A4 paper.

Suwon District Prosecutors’ Office said, “We began reading the report at 7 p.m., and notified attendance at 10:30 a.m. on the 12th for the remainder of the investigation.” However, it was reported that Representative Lee refused to attend on the 12th, saying, “It is difficult because of schedules.”

The prosecution alleged that former Ssangbangwool Group Chairman Kim Seong-tae sent a total of $8 million in 2019 at the request of former Gyeonggi Province Deputy Governor Lee Hwa-young, including $5 million in project expenses to support the creation of a North Korean smart farm that Gyeonggi Province should have paid, and $3 million in expenses for the Gyeonggi Province Governor’s visit to North Korea. During the investigation into the group’s alleged remittance to North Korea, CEO Lee, who was the governor of Gyeonggi Province at the time, was believed to have been involved in Ssangbangwool’s payment, and he was booked on charges of third-party bribery.
