All three people, including former Seongnam Urban Development Corporation Planning Division Director Yoo Dong-gyu, who was indicted at the second Daejang-dong development lobby and preferential trial held today (24th), as well as Hwacheon Daewoo real owner Kim Man-bae and lawyer Nam Wook, all denied the charges.
At the 2nd trial preparatory hearing held by Chief Judge Yang Chul-han of the 22nd Criminal Settlement of the Seoul Central District Court, the lawyer of former general manager Yoo said, "All decisions and execution of the Daejang-dong project were made in the direction of prioritizing the interests of Seongnam City." Overall, I deny it."
The lawyer also added, "I also deny the fact that I received a large sum of money," adding, "I will submit the details in writing."
Lawyer Nam Wook's lawyer also denied the allegations, saying, "How the hell did accused Nam Wook conspire and participated in the breach of trust, because the prosecution did not specify the date and time or specific actions taken, so we cannot defend it."
A lawyer for former reporter Kim Man-bae also said, "I do not admit all the charges," and "I will tell you the specifics based on additional evidence submitted."
All three people have denied the allegations, except for accountant Jeong Young-hak, who said he would admit to all the charges on the previous trial preparation date.
The trial preparation date can be held without the accused, so only lawyers attended the trial today.
Former general manager Yoo is accused of driving Hwacheon Daeyu a profit of 65.1 billion won in housing land development dividends and at least 117.6 billion won in implementation profits, thereby inflicting damage to Seongnam Urban Development Corporation.
In the process, he is also accused of accepting bribes of 500 million won from Mr. Kim and 325 million won from lawyer Nam and accountant Jeong, and promised to receive 70 billion won of profits from the Daejang-dong development project.
Attorney Nam, Mr. Kim, and accountant Jung, the major shareholder of Hwacheon Daeyu, were charged with participating in the breach of the former general manager Yoo and providing bribes.
Attorney Min-yong Jeong, who was recently indicted, the court decided to merge the four cases with the trial.
Lawyer Jung is accused of colluding with former general manager Yoo and others to devise a business so that profits go to Hwacheon Daeyu and Cheonhwa-dongin Nos.Keywords:
