Whether or not to arrest Kim Man-bae, a key figure in the suspicion of preferential treatment for Daejang-dong development, will be decided tomorrow (14th). Let's get in touch with the prosecutor's reporter for more details.

Reporter Son Hyeong-an, first, let's start with the criminal charges that the prosecution applied to Kim Man-bae.


Yes, the prosecution listed three charges on the arrest warrant for Kim Man-bae: bribery and breach of trust and embezzlement under the Act on the Aggravated Punishment of Specific Economic Crimes.

It is said that he is an accomplice to the crime of negligence, claiming that he and Seongnam City inflicted 110 billion won in damage by excluding the provision of recovering excess profits from private businesses together with former general manager Yoo Dong-gyu.

In return, he agreed to give 70 billion won, 25% of the development profit, to former general manager Yoo, plus 5 billion won to Kwak Sang-do's son and 500 million won to Yoo, a bribe of 75.5 billion won in total. The prosecution is looking.

In addition, of the 47.3 billion won borrowed from Hwacheon Daeyu, 5.5 billion won of which the destination is unclear was included in the embezzlement charge.


Yesterday, Kim Man-bae's attorney expressed strong regret to the news that he had requested a warrant.

<Reporter> What

Kim's lawyers are particularly concerned about is that the prosecution did not properly guarantee the right of defense.

Without showing the transcript of accountant Jeong Young-hak, the basis of the crime, he promised to listen to it next time and investigated, but the prosecution suddenly requested a warrant.

The lawyer is expected to emphasize that Kim's health is not good and there is no fear of escaping, while demanding the guarantee of defense rights at the warrant review tomorrow.

The substantive examination of the arrest warrant for Kim will be held at 10:30 am tomorrow.


And how many investigations have been conducted on former general manager Yoo Dong-gyu, who is accused of taking bribes from Kim Man-bae?

<Reporter> The

investigation by the prosecution was scheduled at around 2 pm today, but the case of being investigated by the prosecutor's office was canceled due to a confirmed case of Corona 19 at the Seoul Detention Center where he was imprisoned.

It seems that the investigation will be conducted again after the corona situation in the detention center is cleared up.

In the midst of this, it was found that the investigation team in charge of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office requested the Supreme Prosecutors' Office to dispatch two or three additional prosecutors from other agencies, as it judged that there was not enough manpower to investigate the widespread suspicion of large-scale movement.
