] There were a lot of talk about ‘he’ who appears in the case of Daejang-dong, but a transcript of Kim Man-bae, the major shareholder of Hwacheon Daeyu, calling the incumbent Supreme Court Justice ‘he’ and offering to buy him a 5 billion villa was released.
Interpretations of the opposition parties were again mixed.
Reporter Hong Young-jae on the sidewalk.
In February of last year, Kim Man-bae brought up the story of 'He' during a conversation with Jeong Young-hak.
This is what Mr. Kim said, "He was the head of the court, and he did it so I would make 5 billion won and buy a villa."
Mr. Kim goes on to say, "No one knows. So he lives his daughter."
The prosecution judged that Kim was referring to the incumbent Supreme Court Justice A, who served as the head of the court administration.
He is another Supreme Court Justice different from former Supreme Court Justice Kwon Soon-il, who served as an advisor to Hwacheon Daeyu.
Opposition parties have raised suspicions that 'he' refers to candidate Lee Jae-myung, but in the transcript, 'he' refers to Justice A.
At the state audit last October, the prosecution also made a similar statement.

I am not talking about him as a politician.]
Prosecutors are checking whether the villa that Justice A promised to buy is related to the Pangyo Villa, which was purchased by Kim Man-bae in the name of Cheonhwa-dong No. 1 in 2019.
Justice A said in a phone call with SBS, "I have not met Kim Man-bae and other members of Daejang-dong, and I have never had contact with him, and his daughters do not live in the mentioned Pangyo."
The Democratic Party demanded an apology from the people's power, saying, "I took a life by false instigation of driving Candidate Jae-myung Lee as 'he'." claimed.
