Ex-Justice Minister’s wife attends a court hearing

Ex-Justice Ministers wife attends a court hearing

 

The wife of former Justice Minister Cho Kuk attended a court hearing today (on Wednesday) over charges related to her daughter's college admission and an investment in a private equity fund.

 

Chung Kyung-Sim, also a Dongyang University professor will await the decision on whether an arrest warrant will be issued for her allegations through the hearing.

 

It was the first time Chung had appeared in public as part of the investigation, since prosecutors had so far kept the proceedings behind closed doors.

 

The court will have to decide whether the allegations against her are serious and well founded, and whether there is a risk of her fleeing or destroying evidence.

 

If the court issues the warrant, prosecutors will gain traction to more aggressively investigate former Justice Minister Cho Kuk over the corruption allegations surrounding his family.
