Previously, the prosecution found that lawyer Nam gave 325 million won to former general manager Yoo in 2013 to receive business convenience in Daejang-dong. Based on the statements of private businesses in Daejang-dong, the prosecution handed over former general manager Yoo to trial on charges of bribery (with a 10-year statute of limitations).
