In an emergency press conference, Governor Lee Jae-myung, the presidential candidate of the Democratic Party, directly refuted the suspicion of preferential treatment for the Jangjang district.
The governor protested that he was carrying out criminal-level manipulation even though it was an exemplary public project case, but the people’s power brought up the past BBK case and called for an investigation by the Airborne Service.
This is reporter Kim Tae-min.
One day after the Chosun Ilbo reported on the suspicion of preferential treatment for the ‘Daejang District Development Project’, Governor Lee Jae-myung appeared in front of reporters directly.
The governor strongly objected that speculation and black propaganda were rampant, saying it was an exemplary case of converting a project promoted by opposition figures in the past to public development.
Several allegations were defined as criminal-level manipulation.

At the time of the project, he said that he was only concerned with the recovery of development profits from Seongnam City, but did not know the distribution of profits among private investors.
In particular, he emphasized that it has nothing to do with the wealth management company Hwacheon Daeyu, which is considered the core of the suspicion, and the CEO of a former journalist.
[이재명 / 경기지사 : 저희가 재판 중에 사실 조회를 해보니까 갑자기 ‘화천대유’ 이런 회사가 나와서 제가 뭐냐고 물어봤습니다. 그러니까 자산관리회사다…. 우리는 그 법인 설립에 아무 권한도 없고 알 수도 없고 관여할 필요도 없는 거죠.]
The Chosun Ilbo, which reported on the suspicion of preferential treatment, also raised his voice to withdraw his hands from the Democratic primary and presidential elections immediately.
People’s Power is linking the allegations to the BBK case involving former President Lee Myung-bak.
Although it is at the level of quoting public opinion, it seems to emphasize that the suspicion of corruption is strong.
In the end, the core of the suspicion was the issue of unearned income from real estate, and he strongly urged the investigation into the Public Service.
[허은아 / 국민의힘 수석대변인 : 이미 세간에서는 “BBK보다 심하다”, “화천대유는 누구 겁니까?”라는 말들이 나오고 있습니다. 수사당국은 이 지사와 화천대유의 관계, 그리고 사업자 선정부터 이익 배분의 모든 과정에 대해 철저히 수사해야 할 것입니다.]
Former CEO Lee Nak-yeon, who is competing with Governor Lee Jae-myung, is also closely watching the allegations.
However, in a situation where there is no evidence related to Governor Lee Jae-myung, it is still at a level that demands a clear explanation from the governor.
The reason that Governor Lee himself came forward and evolved this suspicion seems to be due to the judgment that it should not adversely affect the Honam primary, the biggest watershed.
Therefore, if additional suspicions arise from the power of the people or the media, the level of response of this branch is expected to increase.
