Cho Kuk indicted on family-related charges.

검찰조국 장관 불구속기소…뇌물수수 등 혐의

Cho Kuk indicted on family-related charges.


The Seoul Central District Prosecutors indicted the former Justice Minister Cho Kuk (조국) on Tuesday on multiple charges regarding suspicions of academic and financial wrongdoings.


The prosecutors claimed a 6 million won scholarship that Chos daughter received from her school professor could be seen as bribery since the suspect was a Blue House official back then. They added that it could have influenced the professors appointment as a public hospital chief.


The prosecution office also questioned Cho about allegations that he might be involved in regarding charges against his wife, Chung Kyung Sim (정경심). The Dongyang University Professor Chung was indicted by prosecutors previously on charges related to her daughters college admission and investment in a private equity fund (PEF).


If Cho is found out to have known that Chung was embezzling 1 billion won worth of PEF investment to share it with her children, he will face charges for reporting false assets, and violating the regulation of government officials making direct investments.


Additionally, if bribes regarding his daughters scholarship are found out to be true, Cho will face charges of bribery as well.
