Corruption alleged inside Korea prosecutor’s office

In the latest of a series of scandals that have rocked the South Korea prosecutor’s office, a doctor is alleged to have paid about $92,000 to have his indictment quashed.

An investigation centers on the Seoul Central Prosecutors’ Office and a 37-year-old prosecutor named Park who ‘allegedly introduced a suspect to a law firm his brother-in-law works for,’ according to the Korea Times.

The doctor was charged with injecting overdoes of propofol, an intravenous anesthesia, into patients in 2010. He was one of five cosmetic surgeons and gynecologists indicted in the case.

Prosecutor General Han Sang-dae resigned last week because of a series of scandals.

A senior prosecutor, Kim Kwang-joon, was recently arrested on bribery charges.

Kim allegedly took about $825,000 from Cho Hee-pal, the head of South Korea’s biggest pyramid scheme.

Another prosecutor in the Gwangju District Prosecutors’ Office is under investigation for allegedly taking bribes from a horse-racing betting shop in Suncheon, South Jeolla Province.
