The prosecution, which is investigating the case of Daejang-dong development lobbying and preferential treatment, has summoned the younger brother of Kim Man-bae, the major shareholder of Hwacheon Daeyu.

On the afternoon of the 8th, the Seoul Central District Prosecutor's Office's dedicated investigation team called Kim Seok-bae, Kim's younger brother and Hwacheon Daeyu director, to investigate.

It seems that the prosecution will finish the basic investigation of those involved before the investigation into Kim Man-bae's summons on the 11th.

Prosecutors are said to be investigating Kim Seok-bae's involvement in the Daejang-dong development project and Hwacheon Daeyu's lobbying situation.

Mr. Kim said he had no knowledge of the allegations, and explained the son of Kwak Sang-do in particular, saying, "I found out whose son he was after 6 months of joining the company."

Prosecutors are also investigating accountant Kim Min-geol, who served as the head of the Strategic Business Office created in October 2014 by Dong-gyu Dong, former head of the planning division of Seongnam Urban Development Corporation.

Accountant Kim has a history of working at the same accounting firm as Accountant Jeong Young-hak, the actual owner of No.

Prosecutors are expected to question accountant Kim why they did not include a clause on the return of excess profits when promoting the Daejang-dong project, and whether the public offering guidelines were drawn up in favor of the Hana Bank consortium to which Hwacheon Daeyu belongs.

Prosecutors are also tracking the financial transactions of those involved in Hwacheon Daewoo.

It is known that the prosecution recently seized and searched one of the offices used by lawyer Nam Wook to secure the accounting books.

It is known that in this ledger, it was written that he received a check of 400 million won from Mr. Kim and processed it as an office operating fund.

Some are also raising suspicions that the 400 million won in this check may be part of the 500 million won that Kim delivered to former general manager Yoo.
