Prosecutors “I know Lee Jae-myung, the late Kim Moon-ki since 2009”… I asked the Democrats.

Prosecutors indicted Democratic Party leader Lee Jae-myung on charges of publishing false information under the Public Official Elections Act, that Lee knew the late Kim Moon-ki, the first development director of the Seongnam Urban Development Corporation since 2009, and had been receive frequent aides from Kim, including face-to-face reports.

As a result, it is expected that there will be a battle for validity in court in the future. Through several broadcast appearances at the end of last year, CEO Lee has claimed that he did not know Kim at all when he was the mayor of Seongnam, and found out about him during the trial after becoming the governor of Gyeonggi Province.

The prosecution included these additional cases and judgments in the indictment against Lee. Representative Lee Jae-myung and the Democratic Party are of the opinion that it is not appropriate to answer the evidence presented by the prosecution as a trial is being arranged. However, Rep. Park Beom-gye, who serves as the chairman of the party’s political repression countermeasures committee, had no ‘meaningful recognition’ of Kim during his tenure as Seongnam mayor, and it matches whether this is ‘fact’ or not. to the ‘fact’ which is an element of the disclosure of false information I objected that I was not.

According to the indictment filed by the Seoul Central District Prosecutors Office (to be submitted to the National Assembly) submitted by the Ministry of Justice by Kim Do-eup, chairman of the Legislative and Judiciary Committee (Rep. . In the indictment, he said the prosecution, “I got to know the late Director Kim Moon-ki while working on remodeling system improvement activities with Dong-gyu Yoo around June 2009. Former Director Kim Moon-ki and Director of the Planning Division of the Seongnam Urban Development Corporation Yoo Yoo gave Dong-gyu presentations and discussions on the subject, and on December 1st, former General Manager Yoo participated in the ‘National Assembly Policy Debate for Improving the Apartment Remodeling System’ sponsored by the Korea Remodeling Association, where Mr. Moon – ki Kim is the secretary. , along with the late Director Kim,” he wrote. Prosecutors said, “CEO Lee went on an overseas business trip to Australia and New Zealand for a total of 9 nights and 11 days and the late Director Kim and former general manager Yoo between January 6 and 16, 2015, when he was mayor of Seongnam, and with schedules other than the official schedule, such as golf.” height was suggested.

Prosecutors presented four cases in which Lee said he did not know Kim during his time as mayor of Seongnam. The media interview was held on △December 22 last year on SBS’s ‘Youngjin Joo News Briefing’ △December 24th on CBS Radio’s ‘Kim Hyunjung’s News Show’ △December 27th on KBS TV ‘Midnight Talk The Live’ △December 29th on Lee’s Motion Channel Jae-myung – Conversation with a young man’, etc.

CEO Lee appeared on this broadcast and said that he did not know Kim Moon-gi during his time as mayor of Seongnam, did not meet or receive reports many times, did not receive any business assistant, and did not play golf with him on trips foreign business. However, the prosecution opined that ‘even after a business trip to Australia in 2015, I received reports from the late Director Kim Moon-ki and former Director Dong-gyu Yoo, often receiving face-to-face reports from the late Director Kim , and received an assistant to the late Director Kim on all tasks related to the Daejang-dong project.

As for the reason CEO Lee said he did not know Kim, the prosecution said, “If the close relationship between former general manager Yoo Dong-gyu, Ko Yu-gi, and the late Kim Moon- ki, who played a leading role in the Daejang-dong project, and CEO Lee is confirmed, then the suspicion of corruption related to the Daejang-dong development project will be completed. It was feared that opinion critical public opinion that Lee was responsible for the president was formed and had a negative impact on the presidential election, so we published false facts to prevent the spread of criticism by blocking the connection with them,” he wrote in the indictment.

Prosecutors also said, “Regarding the comments made by CEO Lee during the Gyeonggi State Audit on October 20 last year, ‘The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport threatened to change the use of Baekhyeon-dong’, the prosecution said, “CEO Lee said, as well as Seongnam city officials in charge of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, I have never been threatened or pressured to address leaving .” He said, “CEO Lee reviewed the change to the change in the first place. the 4-step usage area on its own, set it as an internal policy, and then raise level 4 from the previous usage area. We have changed the usage area. ” Prosecutors said they “published false information in order to win the presidential election.”

Accordingly, the Democratic Party of Korea did not provide objections or detailed views on the specific grounds and judgments of the prosecution. Ahn Ho-young, a senior spokesman for the Democratic Party of Korea, said in a reply to an SNS messenger sent to Media Today on the evening of the 19th, “I don’t think it is appropriate to give an answer because a trial has been scheduled. about the matter this.” Representative Lee Jae-myung’s office also responded to the SNS messenger that night, saying, “I have already commented several times, and nothing has changed from my previous position.”

However, it was legal to refute the logic of the prosecution. Park Beom-gye, chairman of the Political Invasion Countermeasures Committee of the Yoon Seok-yeol regime of the Democratic Party, said in a telephone conversation with the media this evening, regarding the recognition of the late Director Kim Moon-ki, “The CEO Lee a sense of what kind of person Kim is and what he does as a low-level employee, that is, the legal sense. He objected, “Because it is the realm of the inner mind, it is difficult to judge and it is false about ‘knowing or not knowing’.” Chairman Park also said, “The judgment ‘knows or does not know’ is not ‘fact’, which is an element of false knowledge such as ‘property’ and ‘experience’.”

In response to the prosecution’s explanation that he did not know Kim and others in order to avoid the theory of responsibility for Daejang-dong and reduce the negative impact on the presidential election, Chairman Park said, “At the time, he was already under attack as the main criminal in Daejang-dong and criminally charged.” According to the election law, I am not in a position to make such a statement to win the election.” In response to the prosecution’s claim that ‘Lee knew the late Director Kim since 2009,’ Chairman Park said, “The case must continue for a long time, but we cannot answer in advance all the details that the prosecution has” u numbered. “No,” he replied.

In response to Baek Hyun-dong’s threatening comments, Chairman Park explained, “In the official letter sent by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, there was a phrase ‘change of use is possible’.

Ahn Ho-young, a senior spokesman for the Democratic Party, said at a briefing on the 6th, “CEO Jae-myung Lee’s memory of Director Kim after the election law litigation began after he was elected governor of Gyeonggi-do. After being introduced to Director Kim, I spoke on the phone several times.” He explained that it was difficult for the elected mayor to recognize and remember the head of the work team of the related organization, he explained.
