On Nov. 14 during the initial round of questioning, Cho refused to answer questions but denied all charges against him. He said he would “reveal the truth in court” once prosecutors indict him.

Cho entered through the backdoor of the prosecutors’ office and did not address reporters.

Cho faces a series of corruption allegations involving his family.
