President Moon Jae-in has picked ruling party veteran Rep. Choo Mi-ae as his nominee for justice minister, Cheong Wa Dae announced Thursday.
It was noteworthy that her nomination was announced a day after the prosecution searched the civil affairs office of the presidential office regarding widening allegations that it meddled in the local elections in April 2018. A former investigator with the special inspection team of the civil affairs office was found dead Sunday prior to scheduled questioning by prosecutors.
The presidential office has publicly warned the prosecution about spreading false information about the case. Choo’s nomination is seen as a strong message from President Moon to Prosecutor-General Yoon Seok-yeol, who has been leading a meticulous investigation into the alleged wrongdoings of Cho, one of Moon’s closest allies.
