The 3rd Investigation Division (Prosecutor Choi Seok-gyu) of the Airborne Division sent prosecutors and investigators to the Information and Communication Division of the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office at 10 am today to execute a search and seizure warrant for the server.
It is known that he is trying to check the messengers of the internal network of the Suwon District Prosecutor’s Office, who indicted this high prosecutor on May 12, Kim Hak-eui, former Vice Minister of Justice, on charges of outsourcing the illegal departure ban investigation.
The leak of the indictment became controversial for the first time as the contents of the indictment by the high prosecutor were first reported in the media before the party even received it.
