The Prosecution Is after Persons Involved in Tax Reduction Favor

The Prosecution Is after Persons Involved in Tax Reduction Favor

Posted January. 31, 2002 09:50,   


The Prosecution commanded the Seoul District Prosecution’s 2nd Special department (Park Yong-Suk, superintendent prosecutor) to investigate Shin Seung-Hwan’s, younger brother of former prosecution general Shin Seung-Nam, tax reduction favors granted by former National Tax Service (NTS) director Ahn Jung-Hwan.

The Prosecution is currently examining incident records handed from the Special Prosecution (SP) team, and is clarifying Ahn’s where-about, who left the country last November.

The Prosecution banned out-of-country departures of all individuals involved in the case and will soon summon NTS authorities and Choi (66), who is known to have given Shin 100 million won for tax reduction.

The Prosecution is to confirm whether Choi’s 4 billion won tax, levied by the NTS, was inappropriately calculated under pressure from former director Ahn’s.

Choi is known to have fled as the SP began its investigation against the case.

The Prosecution is also determined to summon and investigate Shin’s sister Shin Seung-Ja, who is known to have delivered Choi’s money after introducing him to Shin.

According to the SP, Ms. Shin delivered Choi’s 100 million won to Shin several times through 4 different accounts in last June.
