Democratic Party presidential candidate Lee Jae-myung said that he was pressured to resign by Yuhan-ki, the former head of the development division, and raised questions about the reliability of the transcripts released by Hwang Moo-seong, former president of Seongnam Urban Development Corporation, and began to cover Lee. There was also an argument that former president Hwang was making a statement against Lee due to his ‘depressed feelings’ that he did not fulfill his term of office.
Rep. Park Chan-dae, who served as the candidate’s chief spokesperson, told CBS Radio, “In the past, prosecution investigations were conducted based on transcripts, and I was disappointed.” Because of this, the prosecution needs to proceed with the investigation based on more accurate evidence.” He added, “The transcript is a one-sided claim. If necessary, an investigation should be conducted between former general manager Yoo and former president Hwang.” In particular, Rep. Park criticized former general manager Yoo, who said that he recommended resignation after knowing that Hwang was undergoing a trial, saying, “He recommended resignation in consideration of someone else’s reputation or his own honor.”
Previously, Seongnam Urban Development Corporation was supposed to receive 50% of the Daejang-dong development revenue, but after he resigned, the company’s public announcement guidelines changed to ‘fixed business profit of KRW 182.2 billion’. paid out
On the same day, Rep. Park Seong-joon from Lee’s side also told CBS Radio, “Sometimes (recording) is used as a protective device when there is a problem with him.” He was the one who did not reveal the stigma problem related to him. It is unclear what this person’s intentions are.” Rep. Ahn Min-seok raised the question, saying that it was ‘reckless heart’. On MBC radio, “Mr. Hwang entered through an open job, but he did not fulfill his term of office and came out in such a state, so there must have been a feeling of humiliation.” However, it is regrettable that he speaks and acts like he is spitting in the well he is eating.”
Former president Hwang said that in February 2015, with less than a year and seven months remaining in his term, he was forced to resign from former general manager Yoo, and nominated Lee, who was then the mayor of Seongnam, as a superior. In a statement released the previous day, he said, “There is no reason for me to make my own play,” he said. In response, former general manager Yoo also issued a statement and countered that Hwang had been accused of fraud in 2013 and recommended resignation for fear that it would adversely affect the construction in the future.
In fact, former president Hwang resigned in March 2015 and was sentenced to 10 months in prison in the first trial in August 2016. In August 2017, the Supreme Court finally confirmed the second trial, which was sentenced to six months in prison and two years of probation. However, former president Hwang said in a statement, “It happened because I connected someone who would lend money to my acquaintance, Mo, who was under financial pressure, but I couldn’t pay it back. Rather, they were accused of fraud, so I paid 200 million won instead, and I am preparing a lawsuit against Lim.”
