In relation to the alleged assault of a taxi driver by Vice Minister of Justice Yong-gu Yong-gu, the police organized a fact-finding team amid allegations that the investigator in charge tried to dismiss the black box video at the time of the police investigation. At the time, the investigator in charge of investigating the taxi driver was placed on standby.
On the 24th, the Seoul Police Agency said, “The report that the investigator in charge of Seocho-seo (last year) confirmed the black box video on November 11th was confirmed to be some facts, and the subject was dispatched on standby this day.” The head of the investigation department was the head of the hearing and investigation joint’Fact Investigation Team’, and immediately initiated an investigation.”
He added, “We will thoroughly investigate any suspicions, such as the time when the person in charge learned about the existence of the video and whether it was reported to the team leader, manager, and manager Seo Cho-seo.”
The fact-finding team consists of a total of 13 people, the police explained.
The previous day, a media outlet reported that the taxi driver A showed the 30-second video stored on the mobile phone to the investigator at the time of the police attendance investigation. At that time, the police said, “I’m standing right” and “I’ll just not watch the video,” A claimed. It is reported that Mr. A sent this video to Vice Minister Lee the day after the incident.
Meanwhile, the police have revealed that they were unable to obtain a black box video during the assault by Vice Minister Lee. Because there was no objective evidence, the case had to be closed.
Earlier, Vice Minister Lee was reported to the police for assaulting Mr. A in early November last year when he was a lawyer. At that time, when A wakes up the deputy minister, who had been drunk and asleep when he arrived at his destination, he said that he took the fatal by cursing.
When the report was received, it was found that the taxi driver submitted an application for disapproval of punishment, and the internal affairs were terminated without filing this loan due to the fact that the crime of simple assault was a crime against intention.
Subsequently, a controversy arose, and a complaint was filed by a civic group asking for the investigation of the loan again. In addition, the police investigation team at the time was also accused of abandonment.
