Homeland Minister Byeon Chang-heum apologizes for’LH employee land speculation controversy’
“Eight large-scale housing sites in the 3rd new city, speculation suspicion investigation”
Responsibility for commanding and supervising Minister Byeon… Controversy about the reliability of participation in the survey
In the Cheong Wa Dae national petition, a request for’national appreciation’ also appeared.
The Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Byun Chang-heum also apologized to the public about the controversy over the controversy over LH employees’ speculation of land in the new city, and announced plans to initiate a large-scale investigation.
However, as the disguised minister who led LH at the time could not escape his responsibility, doubts about the reliability of the investigation still remain.
Reporter Kim Tae-min’s report.
After LH announced its apology to the public, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, the ministry in charge, also stood in front of the microphone.
Minister Byun Chang-heum apologized for not being able to prevent unfavorable affairs as president of LH at the time.
[변창흠 / 국토교통부 장관 : 소관업무의 주무부처 장관이자 직전에 해당 기관을 경영했던 기관장으로서 책임을 통감하며 국민 여러분께 깊은 사과의 말씀을 드립니다.]
At the same time, it announced that it would initiate an investigation into allegations of speculation on 8 large-scale housing sites in the 3rd new city targeting officials of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, related public institutions, and local government employees.
In addition, he explained that the public housing site project included in the 2·4 supply plan will be promoted without any problems.
However, as Secretary Byeon is also not free from responsibility for command and supervision, there is no doubt about the reliability and participation of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.
[이강훈 / 참여연대 민생희망본부 실행위원 (YTN 출연) : LH의 오래된 구조적인 문제들이 이번에 터져 나온 게 아닌가 이렇게 보고 있습니다. 이미 변창흠 장관 재직 전부터 일어난 일인데 계속 주기적으로 조사를 했더라면 막을 수 있었던 점에서 상당히 아쉽고요.]
In fact, on the bulletin board of the Blue House national petition, voices for governmental audits are also coming out beyond the government’s self-investigation.
In addition, if the situation of speculation in the 3rd new town is further revealed through a thorough investigation, the voices of asking Minister Byun’s responsibility are expected to increase even more.
