[To the end ①] 'bribery and sex entertainment' in return for samurai clearance… Obtaining corruption recordings
It's a movie "war on crime" you've seen a lot. Here is a scene depicting the corruption of customs officials in the 1980s. [Man: this is not much but any meal.
It's a movie "war on crime" you've seen a lot. Here is a scene depicting the corruption of customs officials in the 1980s.
[Man: this is not much but any meal ... .]
[Min-Sik Choi (Customs staff): I don't have to do this.
Whether this is a story from a movie or if it's still happening, the panda team covered the Customs Service until the end of the SBS exploration report. We have secured several texts and conversations between customs officials and importers who are guarding the gates of the Republic of Korea and thus calling themselves guardians of the customs border. And we've checked and verified for a long time that it's true.
As Naraddon officials, I will tell you about the fact that they are taking care of their inheritance by cracking the gateway to the border.
First of all, I am a reporter.
In January 2017, a customs officer at Kimpo Airport, aka Kim, sends a text message to someone.
[Kim Hwang (Customs Staff, 2017.1.9 2:46 pm): Do you have income declaration?]
The recipient of the message is Mr. Oh, an importer of shoes and clothing from China.
[Oh (Importer, Jan. 9, 2017, 5:03 pm): I have a declaration on Thu and Sat.]
Mr. Oh will tell you when the goods will come in and when they will be reported, and the cargo serial number. Customs Kim will tell you in real time from the import declaration to the processing result.
[Kim: I'm in. I'll tell you to handle it.]
[Kim: All three items have been approved.]
In another letter, Kim informs President O in advance of his working day and asks him to send a lot of cargo on that date.
If the date is still incorrect, President Oh asks Kim to change his job.
I asked the customs officer why the date was set.
[Former Customs Officer A: (Kim) You're saying 'Saturday is me too'. (Self) on duty. If you come on duty, you'll just pass it. (If you have a problem, can you clear it?) Yes. There are two cases where customs clearance is done by papers and sometimes when you go out. If you do it with paperwork, just pass it and press pass. Don't just pretend to look at the test.
The procedure for importing imported goods into Korea is strict.
When a product enters an airport or port, the Customs Service checks that the importer's declaration matches the product and that it is not a prohibited item.
If there is no problem, you will be taxed and allowed to be brought in. There is a hole in the process.
[Former Customs Officer B: It's about how things got in advance and how to organize them and write them together. It's a terrible case.]
Customs official Kim's eyes closed and passed through Chinese shoes and apparel products are believed to be fakes, so-called counterfeits.
This is a video of Kim talking with a colleague.
[Kim: Honestly, do you think it's genuine or what you bring? Tell me honestly.]
[Hwang, H. (Kim's colleague): I think it's a fake again.]
What happened after the perforation clearance examination?
[Kim: I haven't had any fun in the company until recently, but I want to go abroad, but it's nice to meet you.]
[Oh CEO: LOL This is a bit of a thrill and it's fun to earn pocket money]
The conversation seems to have been paid in exchange for customs clearance.
I also obtained voice files to support this.
[Kim Hwang recording: A gift certificate that moved my heart? Originally, Mr. Oh (Oh) tried to give 400,000 won. He gave me 200,000 won later. I might feel rejected at first. (Original) cash unconditional.]
It can also be described as the secret of not getting paid indiscriminately from several importers.
[Kim: I don't have any contact with other people at all. Then I'm burning. Lost in taste It's just reckless here and there and then you buy it. All. Only one person can kiss each other like this and hopefully it won't take you.]
An informer, who knows the relationship between Mr. Kim and Mr. Oh, said that Mr. Kim received between 500,000 and 1 million won each time he checked for customs clearance.
There seems to be more customs officials who received the money.
[Kim: I wish I had someone like Hyung actually.]
[Hwang: I, I, I like it too.]
[Kim: I hate it if there's no one like that, how good it is. You know our code.]
[Hwang, you're comfortable.]
[Kim: I'm comfortable with the code.]
There are also situations where you have been entertained by an importer.
[Kim: I don't think I can do it because there are so many things I've eaten. I'll get you prostitution. Give me some money. Are you going to raise your emotions?
The Code of Conduct for Customs Officials strictly prohibits private contact with people involved in the job, for-profit acts based on status, receipt of money and entertainment.
