When he was a secretary to the Democratic Party with the National Assembly Legislative and Judicial Committee, candidate Park Beom-gye, who was suspicious of a 300-fold increase in annual sales of the law firm he invested in, said, “On the 14th, I cleared my stake in the law firm and filed a withdrawal report. ”He said.
The personnel hearing preparation team sent a text message to reporters around 6:30 pm on the same day, saying, “We reported withdrawal to the law firm that owned the stake (today) and disposed of the stake.” “The candidate is the 19th in June 2012. At the same time as the opening of the National Assembly, the lawyer reported the suspension of business, and no profits were distributed from the law firm.”
“Even if we maintain the equity stake in the law firm, it does not violate the obligation of members of the National Assembly to prohibit concomitant employment.” However, if you become the Minister of Justice in the future, you may be concerned about a conflict of interest, so it is reasonable to take measures to prevent this. I decided,” he added.
On the 12th, Rep. Cho Su-jin, who analyzed candidate Park’s personnel hearing data, revealed that Myeong-gyeong’s annual sales jumped 328 times from 10 million won each in 2012 to 2014 to 3,383.13 million won in 2020. Myeong-gyeong, a law firm specializing in real estate, was co-founded by Candidate Park in 2012 with an investment of 10 million won. Myeong-gyeong’s annual sales were omitted in 2015 in the property report of Candidate Park due to a “temporary recovery of the equity stake,” and surged from 2016. In 2016-2017, 1,075.64 million won, 1,1089.5 million won in 2018, 1.32 billion won in 2019, and 3.2831.3 million won in 2020 were reported.
Candidate Park was a secretary to the Judiciary Committee from June 2016 to September 2017. Rep. Cho also pointed out that it was controversial because Myeong-gyeong promoted candidate Park on leave as a representative lawyer.
Rep. Cho also pointed out that the annual sales of Myeong-gyeong reported by Candidate Park are different from the amounts recorded in other sources.
In the corporate report posted on’In person’, a site that provides corporate information, Myeongkyung’s annual sales amounted to 1.21.12 billion won in 2014, 1.42.24 billion won in 2015, and 1.71703 million won in 2016, which is more than the report of Candidate Park. Is big.
Regarding this, the day before (13th), the preparation team said, “The candidate is not involved in the internal operation of the corporation at all, so it is irrelevant to the increase in sales of the corporation, and the corporation profit was not distributed at all.” I know the reason for the report based on the sales of the Daejeon office received from Myungkyung by the assistants who helped report it.”
In addition, the preparation team revealed that candidate Park closed his lawyer in June 2012, immediately after the 19th general election, and did not go to work in Myeonggyeong, and that he also resigned as a representative lawyer in 2014, when the ban on concurrent positions as members of the National Assembly was legislated by the National Assembly Act.
