Prosecutors said Thursday they have raided the house of an aide to a former ruling party lawmaker, who is suspected of receiving illegal political funds.

The Daegu District Court said they will summon Sim Hag-bong, former lawmaker of the ruling Saenuri Party, after analyzing materials confiscated from three places, including the house of Sim's aide.

Last month, Sim stepped down from his post after the National Assembly passed a motion to expel him on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman in her 40s at a hotel in the southeastern city of Daegu on July 13.

Sim was questioned by prosecutors, though he was later cleared of charges.

Sim was not immediately reached for comment over the raid. (Yonhap)
