[아시아경제 배경환 기자] Prosecutors demanded a 10-year prison sentence for Lee Sang-jik (Jeonju-eul, Jeonbuk), an independent who was handed over to the trial on charges of breach of trust and embezzlement of Eastar Jet worth tens of billions of won.
At the hearing held at the hearing of the 11th Criminal Division of the Jeonju District Court on the 24th, the prosecution sought 10 years in prison and a fine of 55.476.28 million won, saying, “I forgot my duty as a member of the National Assembly and caused damage by privatizing the company.” said.
Rep. Lee was indicted on charges of embezzling billions of won and damaging the company by selling tens of billions of won in shares of Eastar Jet between 2015 and 2018 at low prices to affiliates such as Eastar Holdings, where children are shareholders.
Prosecutors believe that the amount of embezzlement and breach of trust between Rep. Lee and his family amounts to 55.4 billion won. In particular, it is suspected that lawmaker Lee used the money of Eastar Jet and its affiliates from 2013 to 2019 for personal attorney fees and living expenses, down payment and security deposit related to the rental of Porsche, which was driven by her daughter, and rent for her daughter’s officetel.
Meanwhile, Rep. Lee was tried in custody and was released on bail on October 28. His sentencing hearing will be held on January 12, next year.
