Reporter Ahn Hee-jae reports.


Cho Hee-yeon, superintendent of the Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education, who is accused of exercising undue influence in the process of special recruitment of teachers who were dismissed in 2018, appeared at the Airlift Service on the morning of the 27th.

It is the first time in three months since the Ministry of Air Transport started the case with the 'No. 1 investigation', Superintendent Cho was called to investigate.

Superintendent Cho, who was investigated for 9 hours as a suspect, stated that 'special recruitment is a routine job in public institutions' and 'there is no legal problem'.

[Jo Hee-yeon / Superintendent of Superintendent of Education in Seoul: I have given my vocation. I hope that the Ministry of Public Security and Security, which was born on the background of the people's aspiration for prosecutorial reform, will make a balanced judgment on this special issue... .] The

Ministry of Airborne Affairs has exercised undue influence by instructing Superintendent Cho to specially hire five dismissed teachers, including former teachers, and excluding vice superintendents, etc. I'm suspicious.

After the Board of Audit and Inspection filed a complaint with the police on charges of abuse of authority in April, the Ministry of Air Transport has been conducting a search and seizure of the Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education and investigations of those involved.

However, since the Ministry of Public Safety and Security does not have the authority to hand over Superintendent Cho to trial, when the investigation is completed, the case will be sent to the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office, where the prosecution will decide whether to make a final prosecution.
