While operating the workplace, Mr. A suddenly disappeared when the project he was running was expected to incur a loss of hundreds of millions of won to business partners, and he is accused of arrears in wages for workers.

‘The workers are crying. He begged me to solve the problem even if it was just the salary, but it is said that Mr. A went around the country after going into hiding and moved between motels and inns without a fixed place of residence. There were 14 workers who did not receive wages, and the amount was confirmed to be 47 million won.

The Ansan branch of the Ministry of Employment and Labor received an arrest warrant for Mr. A, and while pursuing his whereabouts, he was arrested in Taebaek City on the 16th.

After that, he applied for an arrest warrant at the Ansan branch of the Suwon District Prosecutors’ Office and was arrested after being issued a warrant.

Ansan branch official who investigated the case said, “Mr. A was afraid of punishment for violating the Labor Standards Act, so he tried to run away, and was arrested because the quality of the crime was poor and the residence was not uniform.”
