Kim Jong-shin, who headed the Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power, was arrested on late Thursday after the task force of the Busan District Prosecutor’s Office in the southeastern port city secured evidence that Kim had accepted bribes from one of the company’s contractors.
The arrest came one month after the prosecutors raided the KHNP’s headquarters and offices. Prior to the raid, the operation of six nuclear reactors was suspended ― including three newly built reactors ― after they were found to have been supplied with substandard control cables under falsified warranties from the local supplier, JS Cable, among others.
The 68-year-old Kim served as the chief of KHNP from April 2007 until May 2012, while JS Cable had supplied faulty cables for two nuclear reactors since 2008.
