The contents of the call were revealed that Democratic Party representative Lee Jae-myung's closest aide ordered a Gyeonggi Provincial Office official to erase the files on the PC the day after Lee resigned from the Gyeonggi governorship.
In response, the party's representative office explained that the aide had asked to delete the files on the personal computer, not the public computer.
Reporter Han Seong-hee will deliver this information.
On October 26, 2021, a recording of a call between CEO Lee Jae-myung's closest aide Kim Mo and Bae Mo Gyeonggi-do Office was released on a YouTube channel.
Aide Kim instructs to delete computer files,
[Aide Kim Mo (source: YouTube back briefing): Delete only files or things like this.
After that, the people who went out made a mess of it.] They
also say that the hard disk needs to be changed.
[Aide Kim Mo (source: YouTube back briefing): We'll buy it and take care of it.
You know what?
If you just delete the file, just delete the file.
And if I go, I will replace the hard drive altogether.]
The day of the conversation was the day after CEO Lee resigned from the post of governor of Gyeonggi Province.
It was a time when the Seoul Central District Prosecutor's Office's investigation into Daejang-dong, which began in the same month, was urgently progressing, such as the arrest of lawyer Nam-wook, who had fled to the United States, and the seizure and search of Seongnam City Hall twice.
Mr. Kim, the closest aide to CEO Lee, is still working as an aide to CEO Lee, and former secretary Bae is charged with violating the election law and is being tried for being involved in the suspicion of misappropriation of corporate card by Mr. Lee's wife, Kim Hye-kyung.
I tried to contact Kim several times to hear his explanation, but I couldn't reach him.
The representative office of the Democratic Party explained, "It was a personal computer file, not a public computer, that was requested to be deleted, and we requested attention out of concern about unauthorized taking of public documents and violation of the Personal Information Act ahead of the dismissal of the lawmakers."
