A case of violation of the Public Official Election Act by a member of the National Assembly who was remanded from the Supreme Court.

A former member of the National Assembly, who was co-defended by our law firm, received a judgment of acquittal and remand at the Supreme Court. In the above ruling, the Supreme Court held that the defendant’s acceptance of bribes was not related to the candidate’s nomination according to the reasons of the appeal from the attorneys, considering how money and valuables were received, the amount and timing of money and valuables received, the nomination process of the candidate in question, and the contents of the Party’s internal regulations. The Daejeon High Court, which had rendered a ruling contrary to the above, once again held a hearing on the relationship between money and valuables and candidate recommendation.
