Prosecutors launch probe over "cabinet documents"

검찰 '캐비닛 문건' 본격 수사

Prosecutors launch probe over "cabinet documents"

 

Prosecutors said Monday they have launched an investigation into documents purportedly written by the former president Park Geun-hye administration regarding the leadership succession of Samsung in connection with the bribery scandal that removed her from office.

 

On Friday, the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae revealed what it claimed to be a lengthy paper trail from the Park administration that possibly suggests backdoor support for a controversial merger of two Samsung affiliates in 2015 deemed vital to a smooth leadership transfer to Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong.

 

The discovery of the documents immediately drew the spotlight as both Park and Lee are currently detained and standing trial on bribery charges in relation to the merger approval. The prosecution has accused Park of lending support to the deal in exchange for money from Lee.

 

The Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office said it received part of the documents from the independent counsel team in charge of the high-profile scandal and that it is planning to carry out a detailed analysis to verify them. The presidential office said earlier that they handed over copies of the documents to the special probe team.

 

Following the authentication process, the prosecution is expected to decide whether to submit any of them to the court as evidence against the former president and the Samsung’s de facto leader.
