November 21 Seoul High Court of Seoul, South Korea, South Korea, asked the prosecution to lift the penalty of seizing former President Quan Douhuan’s main house and courtyard, saying that he could seize his compartment.
In 1997, former South Korean President Jeon Doo-hwan was sentenced to life imprisonment and 220.5 billion won for suspected rebellion. To this day, more than 99.1 billion won 90Million USDhas not been paid.
According to the judgment, the prosecution seized and punished the private houses where Quan Douhuan and his family lived in 2013.
Since then, the prosecution has auctioned the house in public, and Quan Douhuan has challenged the court.
On the 20th, the Seoul High Court accepted the objection raised by Quan Douhuan. At the same time, it was believed that there was not enough evidence to prove that the main house and courtyard of Quandouhuan’s residence in Yanxidong, Seoul, could be confiscated, so it was decided to cancel the seizure.
The practice of public auctions by the procuratorial organs was part illegal. However, the court found that the house in the name of Quan Douhuan’s daughter-in-law was the property bought after accepting bribes, so it believed that the prosecution could legally auction the house.
