Man-bae, the owner of Hwacheon Daewoo, who oversaw the Daejang-dong development project, appeared at the prosecution as a suspect around 10 am yesterday (11th) and returned home a while ago.

That's about 14 hours of intense irradiation.

It is known that the prosecution first questioned Kim on charges of bribing former general manager Yoo Dong-gyu.

Based on the transcript submitted by Accountant Jeong Young-hak to the prosecution and the 20-page affidavit submitted to the prosecution by Attorney Min-yong Jeong, we investigated whether the 500 million won in cash that Mr. Kim gave to Yoo is in return.

It is reported that Kim Man-bae denied the allegations, stating that the transcript submitted by Accountant Jeong during the prosecution's investigation had been edited and had low credibility.

Kim previously appeared at the prosecution and denied all allegations related to the allegations in front of reporters.

Regarding the nature of the 5 billion won paid to the son of Congressman Kwak Sang-do, he said that it was according to the company regulations, and he explained that it was a defense measure against the allegation of forming a luxurious legal advisory group made up of all the officers.
