MBN has obtained the 140-page arrest warrant request filed by the prosecution for Democratic Party leader Lee Jae-myung.
The most notable part is the part where the prosecution calculated the sentence that could be given to Representative Lee, and stated that if Baekhyeon-dong and remittances to North Korea are combined, he could be sentenced to 36 years in prison or life imprisonment.
Reporter Woo Jong-hwan reports exclusively.
The prosecution specified an unusually specific sentence in its request for an arrest warrant for Lee Jae-myung, leader of the Democratic Party of Korea.
The sentencing standard for Ssangbangwool’s remittance to North Korea is up to 12 years in prison, but Representative Lee pointed out that because there are aggravating factors such as a history of criminal punishment, even life imprisonment can be imposed.
The standard for sentencing for suspicions of preferential treatment for development in Baekhyeon-dong is up to 8 years in prison, but considering attempts to conceal evidence, the sentence could be up to 11 years in prison.
It was calculated that if all suspicions of instigation of perjury are included, the possible sentence for Representative Lee could be 36 years and 6 months in prison or up to life imprisonment.
A prosecution official explained that in order to emphasize the ‘seriousness of the crime,’ which is one of the reasons for arrest, the expected sentence according to the statutory sentence is often written down.
▶ Interview: Han Dong-hoon / Minister of Justice (last February)
– “These are serious crimes that warrant arrest for just one count. Fear of flight, which is a ground for arrest by law, means the possibility of a heavy sentence in white-collar crimes.”
The prosecution wrote that Representative Lee’s attitude during the recent summons and investigation was also a reason for his arrest.
He refused to record the video, but claimed one-sidedly that the 먹튀검증statement was not recorded as is, and then left the room without permission.
▶ Interview: Lee Jae-myeong / Representative of the Democratic Party of Korea (last 12th)
– “I don’t know why I called you today. As expected, I couldn’t provide any evidence….”
The prosecution emphasized that it is questionable whether Representative Lee has the intention to respect judicial order, and that this must be taken into consideration when determining the grounds for detention.
