In the process of verifying Lee Min-woo, the new chairman of the Gyeonggi Credit Guarantee Foundation, who caused controversy over his qualification for "sponsoring of the cremation," dozens of reports of transfer were revealed, raising ethical controversy.
In the wake of another ethical flaw following split sponsorship, embezzlement suspicion, and private use of public vehicles, the Morality Verification Committee of the Gyeonggi Provincial Council is said to have made an "unqualified" opinion on the nominee.
According to the Gyeonggi Provincial Council on Tuesday, a committee consisting of 10 lawmakers including Rep. Min Kyung-sun (Chairman) gathered opinions on Lee as "unqualified" after holding a confirmation hearing on the nominee on Wednesday afternoon.
"It has been confirmed that we have reported the transfer 34 times," a member of the committee who attended the hearing said. "There were some lawmakers who said they were competent, but there were more opinions that they were morally unqualified in many ways."
According to Lee, when asked if he would use fake phones, 사설토토 he answered, "It was because of the children's education problems."
But Lee's residential address is 24 times the number of the relocation of the levels 10 times more than Lee Myung-bak, former president known.
Moreover, considering that Lee has only one child, the public opinion is that the explanation that he has changed his address dozens of times simply because of his children's education is not convincing.
Rep. Han also raised suspicion, saying, "It is hard to understand except for the purpose of speculation."
"We cannot confirm the integrity of the investigation (on the charge of forgery) because it is not open to the public," said Chairman Min Kyung-sun of the committee.
He added, "We cannot talk about it (in the media). We`re looking for various ways to make it public to the press, but we`re determined to appeal the committee`s opinions to Gyeonggi Governor Lee Jae-myung in some way.
Earlier, Lee led a campaign to raise funds to support former Governor Kim Moon-soo during the local elections in 2010. Kim Moon-soo was caught and sentenced to a fine.
During the 2014 local elections, he frequently appeared at events held in the camp of former Governor Nam and was called a "nam Kyung-pil man."
In particular, the Gyeonggi Sinbo was found to have been involved in the embezzlement scandal in the process of purchasing employee uniforms in 2006.
Meanwhile, the Economic Science and Technology Committee of the Gyeonggi Provincial Council, which is under the jurisdiction of Gyeonggi Sinbo, is verifying Lee's expertise.
