Arrest Warrant Sought for Ex-Presidential Secretary

Prosecutors have sought an arrest warrant for former presidential secretary Jang Dasaro who is suspected of conducting illegal polls with funds he pocketed from the National Intelligence Service(NIS).

The Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office said Monday that it is charging Jang with bribery, incurring losses of government money and fabricating state documents. 

Jang allegedly received NIS funds in 2008, or the beginning of the Lee Myung-bak administration, and used the money to conduct illegal surveys ahead of the 18th general elections to determine public opinion on pro-Lee and pro-Park Geun-hye candidates.

Last Tuesday, prosecutors raided the offices of Jang and another key official under the Lee administration, former Finance Minister Bahk Jae-wan, and summoned them for questioning over allegations surrounding the NIS funds and illegal polls.
