Former National Intelligence Service chief Nam Jae-jun, who was handed over to the court for allegedly participating in the process of illegally inquiring the information of former prosecutor General Chae Dong-wook, was convicted in the second trial.

Nam was accused of instructing prosecutor Chae Dong-wook to receive and verify espionage reports about the out-of-weds in 2013 when prosecutors were investigating comments.

Prosecutor Nam Se-hoon and former Chun Ho-seo, the former secretary general of the National Intelligence Service, ordered the verification of intelligence of the former President Chae Cha in order to prevent the investigation.

However, the 12th Criminal Division of Seoul High Court judged that it was difficult to admit that the former director of South Korea submitted an order to verify intelligence with former deputy director Seo.

It is the same as the first trial, in which it is difficult to assume that the former president, even though implied, has approved the verification of the information on the information of the unmarried.

On the other hand, when he was prosecuted with former South Korean leader Nam, he was convicted of the NIS staff and the head of Seocho-gu Office.

Deputy Director Seo was sentenced to two years of probation in one year of imprisonment, two months of probation in 10 months of imprisonment by NIS staff, and five million won in fines by Song Mo.
