Yoo Young-min, chief of staff at the Blue House, said, “The Blue House also viewed the Daejang-dong case as abnormal.”
People’s Power lawmakers raised their voices, arguing that President Moon Jae-in met with the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate Lee Jae-myung, asking how the president met with a presidential candidate who could be a suspect.
Yoo Young-min, chief of staff, responded in the afternoon of the 26th at the National Assembly’s Steering Committee’s Office of the President’s Office of State Audit. Director Yoo said, ‘Hwacheon Daeyu, which has only 1% of the stake in the Seongnam Garden Consortium, took 850 billion won in unfair profits’ and ‘President Moon said in his inaugural address that he would create a world free of privileges and fouls, but Daejang-dong Gate also had privileges and fouls. In response to a question from Rep. Lee Young, a member of the People’s Power, “Do you see it as a non-existent matter?”, he said, “The Blue House also said that it was ‘sternly watching’ because it saw (the Daejang-dong issue) irrationally.” “Real estate is the most painful place in our government. We will do our best until the end,” he said.
Director Yoo replied, “Of course, there will be anger from the public, so President Moon gave instructions to the police.”
In response to the question of ‘what does it mean to be ‘uncommon’ of the same party, Yoo Sang-beom, a member of the same party, asked Yoo Sang-beom, “It is about the part that the public knows about the profits obtained from the development process, which are reported at a level that the public cannot understand (yes).” It needs to be verified (by investigative agencies, etc.).”
Regarding the essence of this case, Assemblyman Yoo Sang-beom said that Seongnam Urban Development Corporation forcibly expropriated the land, and Hwacheon Daeyu, which bought 5 blocks at 12 million won per pyeong, sold them at 33 million won, earning close to 1 trillion won in profits, but the excess profit was returned. He explained that it was an incident that made the people angry by not applying the number of clauses, giving the four people in Daejang-dong a huge profit. Director Yoo Young-min said, “After seeing the media reports, everyone felt that way.
When asked if the investigation was done properly, Director Yoo said, “I am a little cautious. Also, I think the prosecution is working hard in its own way.”
Representative Yoo Sang-beom indicted Yoo Dong-gyu, former head of the planning division of Seongnam Urban Development Corporation, and excluded the charge of breach of trust. In addition, he said, “This is an unheard of investigation,” and said, “Do you think the prosecution has properly implemented the president’s instructions? Therefore, the special prosecutor’s theory is equal,” he urged.
When asked what kind of opinion the president thinks it is necessary to make a decision, Yoo Young-min said, “There are (political authorities and public opinion, etc.) requests, so the prosecutors don’t know about it.” Shouldn’t we be discussing The president must be the last to be appointed.”
When asked by lawmaker Lim Ja-ja about why he did not accept the special prosecutor’s opinion, where 70% of the votes were in favor, Yoo said, “The special prosecutor should discuss it at the National Assembly.”
“How does the president meet with a candidate in the investigation category, isn’t it an investigation guideline?”
At the same time, there were voices criticizing President Moon Jae-in’s meeting with candidate Lee Jae-myung at Sang Chun-jae on the same day. When Rep. Seong Il-jong of People’s Strength asked, “The prosecution also revealed that candidate Lee Jae-myung is a person in the investigation category, how can the president meet?” Yoo Young-min said, “President Kim Dae-jung met with President Roh Moo-hyun as before. President Lee Myung-bak also met President Park Geun-hye.”
However, Rep. Seong said, “Were all former presidents such as Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun, Lee Myung-bak and Park Geun-hye the subject of investigation when they met the ruling party presidential candidates? The suspect is a person who can become a criminal.” Director Yoo Young-min said, “I don’t know whether it is the subject of the investigation or the suspect.” “But. As a presidential candidate of the ruling party, we met at the request of the customary,” he explained.
Director Yoo said that there was no one who planned who planned it, and that he could not tell who made the interview request. When the national leader asked if meeting with candidate Lee Jae-myung could affect the investigation, Yoo replied, “I don’t know if you will judge that, but I don’t know if it’s being investigated for a crime.”
When Rep. Seong asked, ‘It is true that he is a candidate for the ruling party’s presidential election, but should the investigation result be announced or should we meet after the investigation is over?’, Yoo said, “After the investigation result comes out, check whether it went well or not, and if there is a problem, please raise an issue.”
Rep. Sung said, “This is impossible,” and “It is the same as the incumbent president ordered not to investigate.” Director Yoo Young-min said, “The Blue House is taking special care.”
People’s Strength lawmaker Jeon Joo-hye was also concerned about the meeting between President Moon and Candidate Lee Jae-myung, saying, “It was a guideline for the prosecution to investigate.” Yoo Young-min, chief of staff, said, “We are also watching closely.”
“I can meet the president because he is a member of the Democratic Party, but I have never met anyone in the investigation category,” said former lawmaker. said.
Lee Soo-jin, a member of the Democratic Party of Korea (Dongjak-eul), countered that it was regrettable that the president met with a person who deserves a reference, not a suspect. Director Yoo Young-min also said, “The subject of the investigation is not certain, and there are no arrests or suspects. We met as a presidential candidate.”
