Staying with the bribery scandal…
The parliamentary legislative and judiciary committee is calling on the government to
launch an independent investigation into the matter.
The committee on Monday lobbed questions at Justice Minister Hwang Kyo－ahn，… who
vowed to get to the bottom of the scandal. Lawmakers from the ruling 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 politicians
listed in the note that the police found in Sung′s pocket.
Meanwhile， prosecutors summoned accountants from Keangnam Enterprises，.. the late businessman′s
company，… to track its lobby fund.
