영부인 사칭 속아 공천대가 건넨 윤장현 전 시장 유죄 확정

Yoon JangHyun(윤장현), the former mayor of Gwangju city confirmed guilty

 

Yoon JangHyun(윤장현), the former mayor of Gwangju city who was indicted for violating the Public Official Election Act, was confirmed guilty.

 

Yoon was tricked by a female who impersonated the wife of former president of Korea, Ro MuHyun(노무현) into providing a significant amount of money.

 

The 1st division of Supreme Court revealed on Mar. 17th that a 1 year of sentence with probation of 2 years was confirmed at the appellate court. This is same as the original judgement at the court below.

 

Yoon was indicted for charges that he gave a total of 450 million won to a 52 year-old female who impersonated the former first lady, Kwon YangSuk(권양숙). It was interpreted that he was anticipating his nomination within the party.

 

The amount was given through 4 occasions between December 2017 and January 2018.

 

Yoon asserted that the money was lent with respect to the personal relation with the former president and sympathy toward the former first lady.

 

However, the courts from the 1st and 2nd trials concluded that the significant amount of money was provided with expectation for the nomination.
