A special investigation team led by Hong Mahn-pyo from the Seoul Central Prosecutor`s Office officially asked Schatten to answer the summons sent via e-mail in Hong’s name on February 3.

Prosecutors are scrutinizing two computers and a box of documents that were seized from the homes of eight associates, including Hwang’s relatives and offices, on February 2.
