SOUTH KOREA LOOKS AT HANJIN’S TAXES

SOUTH KOREA LOOKS AT HANJIN’S TAXES

   The Supreme Public Prosecutor’s Office in Seoul, South Korea, has
summoned the founder and honorary chairman of the Hanjin Group, 79-year-old Cho
Choong-hoon, for questioning about alleged tax evasion among the group’s subsidiaries.
   The Hanjin Group is South Korea’s sixth-ranked chaebol, a power bloc of
diverse but intertwined businesses. A few days ago, Lee Ik-chi, the head of another
chaebol, Hyundai Securities, received a two-year prison term for violations of stock
trading.
   The country’s tax office had imposed a $484 million penalty and filed a
charge of tax evasion against the Cho family, Korean Air and Hanjin
Shipping.
   The elder Cho’s two sons, Cho Yang-ho, chairman of Korean Air Lines, part of
the Hanjin Group, and Cho Su-ho, president of Hanjin Shipping, had been called in for
interrogation ahead of their father.
