Im Jong-heon Summoned on 15th...Commencement of High-Level Investigations in Court AdministrationProsecutors will summon Lim Jong-hun, 58, former vice president of the court administration, who is considered to be a key figure of the judicial farming community. Starting with Lim, it is expected that the Supreme Court will launch an investigation into Yang Seung-tae, former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office (Department General Han Dong-hoon) informed Lim on Thursday that he should appear as a suspect at 9:30 a.m. on May 15 and receive an investigation.
Lim, who served as deputy director of the planning and coordination division of the court administration from 2012 to last year, was selected as the person responsible for the actual affairs of judicial gangs, including inspection of judges and court cases. Prosecutors suspect that Lim is suspected of abusing his authority, leaking confidential official information and violating the law. A prosecution official explained that summoning Lim is an interim inspection of the investigation of the judicial farm and needs to be checked with Lim.
The prosecution plans to follow the order and decision line that leads to Ko Young-han, Park Byeong-dae, and Cha Han-seong, former Supreme Court justice who are suspected to have engaged in court transactions after summoning Lim.
