Kim Jin-wook’s hearing ends… “It’s not right at the public eye level”

The first high-ranking officials criminal investigation chief Kim Jin-wook, held on the 19th, was completed in 11 hours and 30 minutes.

While the ruling and opposition hearing committee members began to verify the morality, candidate Kim apologized for the undercover transfer issue. The ruling and opposition parties did not adopt the hearing progress report on that day and retired at 9:30 pm.

Candidate Kim said at a personnel hearing, “I apologize for the fact that it did not fit the public’s eye level and that it was not appropriate as a candidate for a high-ranking public official.” Earlier, the opposition party raised suspicion that candidate Kim had been disguised in 1997, 2003, and 2015.

Regarding the suspicion that he used parental leave to extend his training in the United States, he explained, “In fact, I was going to take a study break, but there was no precedent. Only some citizens who have (parental leave) are free to use (parental leave), and most SMEs and others seem to be unable to properly take parental leave for fear of losing their jobs.” “If you take into account such public sentiment, I am sorry that I am not the class that benefited. It also clarified the suspicion of a stock-related suspicion of 9386 million won of Miko Biomed, a manufacturer of a new coronavirus infection (Corona 19) diagnosis kit owned by candidate Kim. On March 17, 2017, Candidate Kim acquired 5813 shares of Nanobiosis for 8,300 won per share through a third-party allocation method. Nano Viosys merged with Miko Biomed in August of the same year.

In response, the opposition party raised suspicion that candidate Kim had acquired stocks using undisclosed information through Miko Biomed CEO Kim Seong-woo, who was alumnus while studying in the United States.

In this regard, when Paik Hye-ryeon and Democratic Party Member of the Democratic Party commented,’As a senior public official, the amount is not large, but there may be a conflict of interest, so I think it would be good to organize the stocks.’

Representative Kim Seong-woo, who was present as a reference, asked Congressman Cho Su-jin,’Do I admit that I made it 10% lower than the market price?’, and said, “There is a rule that allows you to sell it down. If you sell stock, the stock price can fall, and this You can sell it down in case. It wasn’t a privilege, but it was done to everyone who came in.”

Candidate Kim also said, “I apologize here for trading stocks during working hours while serving as a senior researcher at the Constitutional Court. It was not appropriate as a candidate for high-ranking officials.”

Regarding the suspicion of preferential treatment for the completion of the Ph. Candidate Kim attended a doctoral course at Seoul National University in 2017, when he was a constitutional researcher, and was suspicious of preferential treatment from the opposition party as he completed A credits despite the high absence rate in some classes.

Candidate Kim said, “The characteristics of graduate school classes.” “(students) 15-20 people hold presentation classes. After starting in March, the first speaker starts in mid-April and after the presentation classes are set, It will be conducted as a block seminar.” He continued, “I did not receive preferential treatment because of my relationship with (Professor).”

Allegations of vehicle seizure were actively refuted. According to Rep. Cho Su-jin, a member of the People’s Power, Kim was caught 13 times from 1993 to the present for violations of parking and stopping and speeding, and was notified of vehicle seizure. “I remember that there was no arrears,” and a false response controversy arose.

In this regard, Candidate Kim said, “This is my memory. The foreclosure date starts on March 15, 2002, which is the period when I was in the United States. It was July 2001,” he said. “I handed over the car I used to ride to my father. (The vehicle was seized) When I was abroad.”

Meanwhile, a rumor broke out between the ruling and the opposition party over the subject of the 1st Air Defense Agency investigation.

After quoting the past remarks of the Open Democratic Party Rep. Choi Kang-wook, Rep. Cho argued that “in the passport, Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol was immediately selected as the first target for the investigation of the air defense department.” It is distorting.”

Rep. Choi said, “At the time, that answer was when the issue of President Yoon’s mother-in-law became an issue, when asked if she thought that her mother-in-law should be the number 1 target for the investigation of the airlift, the person (President Yoon) was the mother-in-law. It was an answer that it could not be the subject of investigation.”

In response, Democratic Party lawmakers raised their voices that they should apologize for distorting the facts, and Judicial Commissioner Yoon Ho-joong asked Congressman Cho his intention to apologize. Rep. Cho did not express his intention to apologize.

On the other hand, Candidate Jin-wook Kim said, “The first case of the Airborne Service is of great symbolic significance” when asked for a view on the claim that Yoon will be the No. 1 target for investigation. “The part has been thoroughly reviewed at that point after the investigation system has been established. It should be done,” he saved.
