The Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office sent investigators to search for evidence related to the officer’s involvement in the alleged sabotaging.
The officer, identified by his family name Kim, who has long been in charge of gathering labor-related information, is suspected of tipping Samsung Electronics Service officials off about labor union movements among its employees.
Prosecutors suspect Kim was bribed by Samsung’s after-sales service unit in return for such information.
Prosecutors are widening the probe into the alleged systematic sabotaging of labor union activities by Samsung as there is suspicion that some ranking public officials were involved.
They raided Samsung Electronics’ headquarters in Suwon on Sunday and arrested a former aide to the labor minister early Wednesday for being involved in the alleged scheme. (Yonhap)
