A civic group has filed a complaint against Gyeonggi Governor Lee Jae-myung on charges of breach of trust.

He also announced that he would file a complaint with the Supreme Prosecutor's Office next week against Yoo Dong-gyu, who was the head of the planning division of Seongnam Urban Development Corporation at the time, and the representative of the private consortium 'Seongnam Garden'.

On the other hand, the branch re-emphasized that the development of Daejang-dong was a 'model project', not a subject of suspicion, in a way that guaranteed profits of more than 500 billion won to Seongnam City.

In the end, it seems that the focus of the investigation will be to reveal whether the development was carried out in the current way even though the Governor Lee and others knew that there is another development method that is more beneficial to Seongnam City.

However, there is an opinion that this branch was not the subject of investigation by the Ministry of Airborne Affairs as it was during the days of Seongnam Mayor.

In the midst of this, the Supreme Prosecutor's Office assigned the case against former Supreme Court Justice Kwon Soon-il, who received a large sum of money as an advisor to Hwacheon Daeyu without registering as a lawyer, to the Economic Crimes Criminal Division of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office and started a full-scale investigation.
