Following Byeon Seong-wan, the former mayor of Busan, who was in charge of the Busan municipal administration, and the top manager of the underground roadway management local government, it was revealed that he was away for drinking and is shocking.
The Busan Gyeongnam Future Policy argued that on the 23rd, it was revealed that the head of A department-gu, Dong-gu, Busan forged his work log on the day of the accident in order to cover his personal drinking party, and that the court should be arrested.
This fact was revealed in the process of interrogation of the suspect before arrest (warrant substantive examination) against Mr. A held at the hearing of the exclusive warrant for the warrant of the Busan District Court on the morning of that day.
On that day, the prosecution said that Mr. A left the ward office at around 6:40 pm on July 23, last year, the day of the accident, had a private drinking party, and returned to the ward office at about 9 pm.
Regarding this, Mr. A claimed that “the mayor, who was on vacation at the time, was told that he would return soon, and he was away for a while.”
On the day of the accident, Mr. A’s work diary, which the future policy was handed over from the Busan tool, and revealed that he presided over two meetings of the Disaster and Safety Countermeasure Headquarters at 5:30 pm and 6:30 pm.
