The daughter-in-law of former President Chun Doo-hwan filed an administrative lawsuit to cancel the sale of the ex-president’s house in Yeonhui-dong, but lost in the appeals court.
The 3rd administrative division of the Seoul High Court ruled against the plaintiff as in the first instance today (11th) in the appeals court of appeal against the Korea Asset Management Corporation by Lee Yoon-hye, the daughter-in-law of the former president.
The prosecution sold the Yeonhui-dong house to a public auction in 2018 when the former president did not pay 220.5 billion won in fines, which were confirmed on charges of rebellion and bribery.
Accordingly, the former president’s family filed an objection to the court and filed several administrative lawsuits, claiming that the main house, the garden, and the annex of the Yeonhui-dong home were divided into the names of his wife, Lee Soon-ja, secretary, and daughter-in-law, respectively.
This judgment is the result of a lawsuit filed by the daughter-in-law Lee to cancel the public sale of the annex.
Unlike the annex, the court decided to cancel the seizure, saying that the main building and garden are difficult to see as illegally secured property, and this was confirmed in April.
