An Incheon court on Monday issued arrest warrants for Yoo Dae-kyoon, the oldest son of the late billionaire Yoo Byung-eun, and Park Soo-kyung, a female aide of Dae-kyoon.

The Incheon District Court held the warrant hearing to review documents proposed by the prosecution and approved the issuance, citing fears that the junior Yoo, 44, and Park, 34, may flee or destroy evidence.

The court also endorsed the warrant for Dae-kyoon's another female aide Ha Bo-eun, 35, for concealing the two suspects.

Dae-kyoon has been suspected of the embezzling funds worth 9.9 billion won ($9.7 million) from Chonghaejin Marine Co., the operator of the sunken ferry Sewol, and its subsidiaries.

Park has been under probe for providing Yoo with hideouts after the April 16 ferry disaster.

The junior Yoo and Park was captured by police at Ha Bo-eun’s residence in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, last Friday.
