President Park Geun-hye said Tuesday the industry ministry should actively exercise its oversight of nuclear power plant operators to prevent corruption amid a widening probe into suspicions that plant operators used a number of substandard reactor parts in exchange for money.

“We should make this case an opportunity to root out nuclear power plant corruption,” Park said during a Cabinet meeting. “First of all, we should strictly conduct the prosecution investigation and the inspection by the Board of Audit and Inspection, and make the results known to the public in detail.” (Yonhap News)
