The nation’s justice ministry says it has secured enough testimony to prove so-called love-child allegations surrounding Prosecutor-General Chae Dong-wook.
The justice ministry said it began an investigation in mid-September into allegations that Chae fathered an illegitimate son, and found that Chae has been involved in a relationship with the mother of the child for the past few years.
The ministry also urged the Presidential Office of Cheong Wa Dae to accept Chae’s offer to resign from his post, which was submitted two weeks ago.
The opposition parties have been demanding a probe on the matter, accusing the presidential office of using its influence to force Chae from office, because it was unhappy with the way he’s handled recent political issues.
