Previously, special team analyzed the communication record of two cellular phones and telephones at Lee Soo-Dong`s house and office, and found out that the executive prosecutor had phoned Lee Soo-Dong 126 times from January to February last year, and frequently communicated with Lee Soo-Dong early November last year, and requested the Supreme Public Prosecutors Office to summon him.
