Chung Kyung-Shim: Cho and Cabinet Post

chung kyung-shim: Cho faces a dozen charges, including bribery, document fraud, manipulation of evidence and public service ethics law violations, it added, according to The Japan Times. Together with his wife he is being prosecuted for falsifying documents regarding family investments and efforts to gain university admissions. The accusations are a setback for President Moon Jae-in after the liberal leader named Cho, a former top aide, to the Cabinet post to lead reform of the prosecutor's office, which critics saw as being susceptible to political pressure. ; The Seoul Central District Prosecutor's Office indicted Cho and his wife, Chung Kyung-shim, on Tuesday morning over family investment and using their position to gain admissions for his children, it said in a statement. Cho will remain free as he stands trial. Cho's lawyer, Kim Chil-joon, did not immediately respond to telephone calls or a text message to seek comment. Chung, who is also a university professor, was arrested in October on the same charges. ( As reported in the news.
