It has been more than 9 hours since Democratic Party representative Lee Jae-myung attended the Seoul Central District Prosecutor's Office.

He was called back to the prosecution as a suspect in the development of Daejang-dong.

Representative Lee strongly criticized the 'dictatorship of Prosecutor Yoon Seok-yeol' for 'judicial murder'.

First of all, I am reporter Kang Chung-wan.


At 10:22 am, Lee Jae-myeong, the representative of the Democratic Party, stood on the photo line in front of the Seoul Central District Prosecutor's Office.

It has been 1 year and 4 months since the suspicion of Daejang-dong was raised in September 2021 and the prosecution investigation began.

Representative Lee took out the prepared entrance statement from his arms and read it for about 2 minutes and 30 seconds as if he was determined.

[Lee Jae-myeong/Democratic Party Representative: Folks, please remember this scene today.

Today, this is the scene where the dictatorship of Prosecutor Yoon Seok-yeol destroyed the rule of law and the constitutional order

. criticized harshly.

[Lee Jae- myung

/Representative of the Democratic Party: If you are close to a person in power, you will be exempted from any crime, and if you stand against a person in power, you will not hesitate to commit murder.]

Representative Lee said that the answer to his prosecution's question would be replaced with a statement, as in the Seongnam FC suspicion investigation on the 10th, and released the full text of the 33-page statement through social media, etc.

Ahead of Lee's summons, groups for and against gathered in front of the prosecutor's office in Seocho-dong, Seoul from early morning.

[President Lee Jae-myeong, please cheer!]

[Lee Jae-myeong is a sinner!]

There was no physical conflict even though Goseong was once across Banpo-daero.

Despite Representative Lee's dissuade to attend alone, about 10 Democratic Party lawmakers, including the leadership, came out and exchanged greetings with Representative Lee.
