[사회]’Daejang-dong 4 people’ first trial today… About 40 attorneys


While the investigation into Daejang-dong’s superiors and lobby is hardly speeding up, the first trial of the ‘core four’, including Kim Man-bae, the major shareholder of Hwacheon Daeyu, begins at the court today (6th).

There are more than 40 lawyers appointed by them, and a fierce battle with the prosecution is expected over the establishment of the core charge of breach of trust.

The four men in Daejang-dong have been charged with stealing huge profits by arbitrarily engaging in a public-private joint development project.

Although the investigation into the high-ranking and lobbying allegations is still ongoing, the court battle will begin in earnest, starting with the trial preparatory procedure to confirm the position and the plan to prove the charges already indicted.

While the trial of former general manager Yoo Dong-gyu, who was first arrested in October, was delayed, the cases of Kim Man-bae, lawyer Nam Wook, and accountant Jeong Young-hak were merged.

They are accused of accomplices in breach of trust by designing the project solely according to the interests of Hwacheon Daewoo during the development of Daejang-dong and causing at least 180 billion won in damages to Seongnam Urban Development Corporation.

Former general manager Yoo Dong-gyu is also accused of bribery, such as receiving a promise of 70 billion won from Kim Man-bae in return.

Attorney Nam-wook is also accused of giving 3.5 billion won in bribes to lawyer Jeong Min-yong, who helped him during the business review in Daejang-dong.

Except for Jeong Young-hak, an accountant who has cooperated with the prosecution’s investigation, such as submitting a transcript, all are in detention.

A total of 43 lawyers were appointed by the four members.

Among them, only 23 lawyers for Mr. Kim Man-bae.

A large law firm was appointed as a full-time attorney who used to be a prosecutor or chief judge, and Lee Kyung-jae, a lawyer who defended Choi Seo-won in the Gukjeong Nongdan case, was also listed.

First of all, it is expected that the Kim and his party will deny responsibility for the alleged breach of trust, which is a key issue in court.

Dong-gyu Yoo, the former general manager who led the development of Daejang-dong in the public domain, also declined to say that he had not yet received any evidence, but it seems that he will stick to the position that the project was designed according to the pre-set guidelines of Seongnam City.

It is also expected that the defendants will shift responsibility to each other.

At the same time, it remains to be seen whether the ‘Transcript of Jeong Young-hak’, which has been pointed out as key evidence from the beginning of the investigation, but has never ceased to be controversial, will be released in court.
