Senior Prosecutor Grilled for 12 Hours on Bribe Allegations

Senior prosecutor, Kim Gwang-joon, returned home early Wednesday morning after prosecutors grilled him for roughly 12 hours over suspicions he took bribes.

Kim left the prosecutors' office at 3:15 a.m. and denied to answer reporters questions if he received bribes via borrowed-name accounts before he stepped into a car waiting to take him home.

The special assignment prosecutor probing Kim’s case reportedly grilled him on whether the borrowed-name accounts exist and whether he was bribed in return for offering favors. In response, Kim reportedly provided active explanations about the allegations.

Kim is suspected of pocketing via borrowed-name accounts 200 million won from a close contact of con man Cho Hee-pal and receiving 600 million won from an official of a South Korean company, Eugene Group.
