The police are investigating the allegations that the company of the wife-in-law of candidate Yoon Seok-yeol, a candidate for the People’s Power, received preferential treatment for an apartment development project in Yangpyeong-gun, Gyeonggi-do.
But this time, it turned out that Yangpyeong-gun did not impose a development charge of more than 1.7 billion won, which was 0 won.
Candidate Yoon’s side said, “I followed the due process and there was no preference.”
Reporter Kim Soo-yeon reported.
A 350-unit apartment complex.
It was developed by Yoon Seok-yeol, the wife of a presidential candidate for People’s Strength, and was completed in 2016.
Sales confirmed in the audit report, that is, sales from pre-sale, amounted to KRW 79.8 billion.

The current law stipulates that 20~25% of the remaining profit after deducting the construction cost and the initial land purchase cost from the sale income is to be paid as a development fee.
However, the developer owned by Yoon’s wife did not pay a penny of this charge.
In the past 10 years, it was the only one out of 10 apartment development projects in Yangpyeong-gun that there was no charge.
Yangpyeong-gun internal data.
In November 2016, the levy, which was estimated at 1.7 billion won, was confirmed as ‘0 won’ after two revision applications.
The argument was accepted that the cost of construction had increased and the profit was not made.
In response, Candidate Yoon’s side said, “There is no problem with the procedure,” Yangpyeong-gun said, “there was a large proportion of land to be donated, so it did not pay the development levy.”

The fact that Yangpyeong-gun retroactively extended the business license deadline by one year and eight months is still controversial.
In particular, it was confirmed that Yangpyeong-gun announced the ‘extension of the deadline’ in the military bulletin arbitrarily without the approval procedure stipulated by the internal regulations during this process.
The official in charge initially claimed that he had “received approval from the director,” but changed his words to “there was only an internal report” to KBS’s query about ‘there was no corresponding content in the approval document’.
The police will soon summon officials to investigate the allegations.
