An LH employee named Mo Kang, also known as CEO Kang, who was in charge of land compensation at LH and purchased land in the 3rd Gwangmyeong New City, was arrested.
As Kang, who has been considered a key body figure since the first LH land speculation allegations were raised in March, has been arrested, so the related investigation is expected to speed up.
This is reporter Kim Seung-jae’s report.
Mo Kang, an LH employee, enters the courthouse with his hat tight.
He did not open his mouth to a reporter’s question asking if he acknowledged the speculation allegation.

Mr. Kang was famous enough to be called the so-called President Kang in the new town development area.
He was finally arrested three months after the police investigation began.
Another LH employee, Jang Mo, who is suspected of speculation along with Kang, was also arrested.
They have been selected as key figures since a civic group first announced the suspicion of LH speculation in March.
However, it was not easy to prove concrete charges.
This is because the land compensation work that Mr. Kang was in charge of at LH had little to do with the development of new towns.
The police, who gathered their investigative powers to track down how Kang obtained undisclosed information about the new city, found evidence in the text message Kang sent to his colleague Jang.
In February of last year, Mr. Jang shared the development information he received from officials at the Gwangmyeong and Siheung business headquarters with Mr. Kang, and Mr. Kang, who received the information, sent a message to Mr. Jang saying, “It is a fact.”
A week later, they jointly purchased four plots including Okgil-dong, Gwangmyeong-si for 2.2 billion won.
After that, the land they bought soared to 3.8 billion won as they were incorporated into the Gwangmyeong and Siheung new towns.
The police are also planning to speed up the investigation into 10 people suspected of speculation related to Kang.
