And staying with the bribery scandal story…
The parliamentary legislative and judiciary committee is calling on the government to
launch an independent investigation into the matter.
The committee lobbed questions at Justice Minister Hwang Kyo－ahn on Monday， who
vowed to get to the bottom of the scandal. Lawmakers from the ruling Saenuri Party focused
on the fact that the late businessman was pardoned twice during the Roh Moo－hyun administration，
implying there could be more politicians in the liberal camp who took bribes.
Opposition party lawmakers said… the investigation should first focus on the eight people listed
in the note. Meanwhile， prosecutors summoned accountants
from Keangnam Enterprises，.. the late businessman′s company，… to track its lobby fund.
