Ex-Spy Agency Chief Faces Questioning over Delivering Money to Presidential Office

Former chief of the National Intelligence Service(NIS) Lee Byung-kee will be summoned for questioning on Monday over allegations that the spy agency delivered money to key aides of former President Park Geun-hye while she was in office. 

According to the prosecution, Lee will appear for questioning at 9:30 a.m. Monday. 

Lee is one of the three former NIS chiefs who are accused of illegally providing a total of four billion won of the agency's funds to close aides of Park between 2013 and mid-2016.  
 
Lee's predecessor, Nam Jae-joon reportedly admitted to sending about 50 million won to the presidential office every month. 
 
The prosecution plans to grill Lee on why the amount of the monthly payment was raised to 100 million won during his term and whether he offered the money at the request of the presidential office. 
 
Prosecutors suspect that there could be a connection between the raised payment and Lee's appointment as chief presidential secretary upon leaving the spy agency.
