The Public Investigation Department of the Prosecutor's Office is the department in charge of election-related cases.
An official from the prosecution said, "First, we will look into whether former President Yoon Seok-yeol and others have violated the Public Official Election Act."

It is known that two prosecutors who participated in the fact-finding investigation at the Supreme Prosecutor's Inspection Department will also join the investigation.
A prosecution official explained that the case was allotted to the front line, but there are more interpretations that the investigation has been switched to an investigation that can be forcibly investigated, as there is a limit to the fact-finding alone in finding out the facts related to the allegation.
However, he explained that the fact-finding investigation on the level of the Great Prosecutor would continue.

In response, the prosecution said that it would cooperate well so that it would not overlap with the Airborne Service, and the Airborne Division also stated that it would monitor the progress since the prosecution's investigation scope was limited.
