Controversy over active intervention in Daejang-dong development and resignation of former president Moo-seong Hwang… Yuhan-ki’s side “It’s not true”
[아시아경제 배경환 기자] The prosecution, which is investigating the Daejang-dong development preferential treatment and lobbying allegations, is increasing the intensity of its investigation into former Seongnam Urban Development Corporation (Seongnam Provincial Construction) development division head Yu Yu-gi. This is in response to suspicions of bribery as well as intervening in the selection of a private business operator for the Daejang-dong development and the resignation of the former president of Seongnam Province.
According to the legal circles on the 29th, the Seoul Central Prosecutor’s Office’s investigation team (team leader Kim Tae-hoon, 4th deputy chief) began additional confirmation of the development process of Daejang-dong and the recently released transcript of the former president of Seongnam Province, Hwang Moo-seong. Currently, the investigation team has confirmed that Director Yoo was deeply involved in the development of Daejang-dong, and in effect classifies him as a ‘member of Daejang-dong’.
After Yoo Dong-gyu, the former head of the planning division, who was the key man in the Daejang-dong incident, Yoo was called ‘YouTwo’ by exercising powerful power in Seongnam-do Gaegong. Previously, the investigation team confirmed the process of selecting a private business through former head of division Yoo Dong-gyu and investment project team leader Jeong Min-yong (lawyer), and believes that former general manager Yoo also actively intervened in this process.
It was confirmed that Director Yoo Jeon served as the evaluation chairperson in the absolute evaluation of the Daejang-dong development private business operator selection and as the chairperson of the subcommittee in the relative evaluation. The absolute evaluation judges consisted of three people: former Head of the Division Yoo, Moon-ki Kim, Head of Development Project 1, and Team Leader Jeong.
Traces of illegal intervention in the process of resignation of former president Hwang were also detected. In February 2015, a transcript of former general manager Yoo Yoo, referring to former general manager Yoo Dong-gyu to former president Hwang, and encouraging him to resign was released. Former President Hwang resigned after failing to fulfill his term of office, and after that, former general manager Yoo Dong-gyu took over as acting president and led the Daejang-dong business.
In connection with the allegations, former general manager Yoo has been accused one after another. After a civic group accused Yoo and others of abuse of power, the people’s power also filed an additional complaint with the Supreme Prosecutor’s Office for obstruction of the exercise of the right to abuse of power, coercion, and violation of the Public Official Election Act. Considering that the Supreme Prosecutor’s Office assigned this case to the Economic Crimes and Criminal Department of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office, which is investigating the background and process of the development of Daejang-dong, it is highly likely that Yoo will be investigated from various angles.
Former general manager Yoo is also suspected of receiving billions of dollars from Hwacheon Daeyu Asset Management. It has been found that a dedicated investigation team is looking into the matter and is checking the nature and flow of the funds.
As the prosecution’s investigation intensified, former general manager Yoo, who had been silent for a while, also began to actively express his position. Yoo, the former general manager, told his lawyer the day before, “Ex-President Hwang was indicted for rumors related to a construction company and a fraud case at the time of his tenure as president, and he was being tried, and he did not inform the corporation.” statement was released. The mention of senior executives such as Yoo Dong-gyu, the former general manager, also came after he judged that former president Hwang had no intention of resigning. .
