Late Monday, the prosecution raided one of Seoul’s district offices as part of its investigation into the leak of personal information of the former prosecution chief’s alleged love child.
Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office seized several surveillance cameras at the Seocho-gu Office to identify a staffer who contacted a spy agency official surnamed Song and reportedly divulged the child’s information via phone at the office, officials said.
The prosecution confirmed the phone records ahead of the raid.
Song is suspected of playing a role in the leak incident, which has cast further doubts on the role of the National Intelligence Service.
The latest raid followed the prosecution’s seizure of documents related to the leak last November.
