A Seoul court held a hearing on Thursday to decide whether to issue an arrest warrant for former Vice Justice Minister Kim Hak-ui on bribery charges.
Kim, a figure who has also drawn wide public attention for his alleged sexual assaults a decade ago, attended the hearing at the Seoul Central District Court. Arriving at the court at around 10 a.m., Kim didn’t respond to questions from reporters.
The 63-year-old Kim, who briefly held the No. 2 post at the Ministry of Justice in 2013, is accused of receiving bribes and sexual favors worth 130 million won (US$109,000) between 2006 and 2008, including money and valuables worth 30 million won from a construction contractor named Yoon Jung-cheon.
