Regarding Lee Jae-myung, the leader of the Democratic Party of Korea, appearing at the prosecution and saying, “Request an arrest warrant while the National Assembly is not in session,” Justice Minister Han Dong-hoon said on the 18th, “It is obvious to anyone that a suspect under investigation asks for arrest at any time, as if making a reservation at a restaurant. It is an unusual thing,” he pointed out.
Minister Han met with reporters prior to the signboard hanging ceremony for the relocation of the North Korean Human Rights Archives of the Ministry of Justice held at the Gwacheon Government Complex in Gwacheon, Gyeonggi Province토토사이트, and said, “You said you were giving up privileges, but there seem to be a lot of unusual requests for special treatment.”
Regarding CEO Lee’s remarks at the prosecution the previous day that it was a “manipulative investigation by the political prosecution,” Minister Han said, “It is natural for a suspect undergoing a criminal investigation to make his own excuses.” no,” he said.
The Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office’s Anti-Corruption Investigation Division 1 (Chief Prosecutor Eom Hee-joon) summoned and investigated CEO Lee as a suspect on charges of breach of trust related to the suspicion of preferential development in Baekhyun-dong the previous day. Representative Lee read the statement before attending the prosecutor’s office and said, “(The prosecution) should give up the trick of seeking division and conflict by requesting a warrant during the session and confidently request it during off-session.”
Representative Lee also said, “Isn’t it to cover up the incompetence and political failure of the Yoon Seok-yeol regime by making me a sacrifice?” Representative Lee entered the prosecutor’s office at 10:40 am and was investigated for about 13 hours and 30 minutes.
In the political circle, there are observations that if the prosecution requests an arrest warrant for Lee this month, he may have an off-session period so that he can undergo a warrant review without a vote on the arrest motion at the National Assembly. However, if an arrest warrant is requested after September, when the regular session of the National Assembly begins, the motion for an arrest motion must be voted on.
