Prosecutor Son Jun-seong, a key figure in the 'suspicion of accusation' of instigating a accusation against passport personnel during the time of Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-yeol, is undergoing a second detention review. Connect with court reporters.

Reporter Hong Young-jae, the arrest warrant was dismissed once, and then the Ministry of Air Transport filed a request again. Is the content of the warrant reinforced?


Prosecutor Son Jun-seong's second arrest warrant review was held for about 3 hours in the morning of the 2nd.

It has been 5 weeks since the first arrest warrant was dismissed.

[Prosecutor Son Jun-seong: (Please tell the judge about the re-application of the warrant.) I will explain in detail to the judge.]

Prosecutor Sohn is accused of delivering a complaint about passport personnel to Rep. After the first arrest warrant was dismissed, the Airborne Service strengthened the contents of the warrant by investigating Sohn, his subordinate prosecutors, and Rep. Kim Woong.

Unlike the first time, where the author and sender of the complaint were expressed without names, this time, it was specified as two prosecutors under his subordinates, as well as public prosecutors belonging to the Office of Investigation and Information Policy.

The Ministry of Airborne Affairs also emphasized that there is a risk of destroying evidence by kissing them, and insisted on the need to secure new recruits for hand inspection.


Prosecutor Son Jun-seong continues to deny the allegations.


Prosecutor Son Jun-seong claimed that the agency only changed the expression and still could not identify the author and sender of the complaint.

In addition, the investigation process of the Airborne Service is taken into question, emphasizing the illegality of the investigation.

In this situation, whether or not to detain the hand prosecutor is expected to have a decisive effect on the direction of the investigation of the accuser.

If an arrest warrant is issued, the Airborne Service can secure the investigative power and revive the article, but if it is dismissed, it is expected that a harsh evaluation of the Airborne Service's investigative capabilities will continue.

Judge Seo Bo-min in charge of warrants is reviewing the arrest, and the result is expected to come out late tonight.
