Prosecutors questioned Chung Yong-jin, vice chairman of Shinsegae Group, Wednesday over his rejection of parliamentary summons to attend a hearing in October.
The National Assembly accused Chung and three other heads of major retail giants here of abandoning their duties to attend the hearing session during a parliamentary inspection. They were ordered to appear at the National Assembly and answer questions by lawmakers but none of them did, citing business trips.
The Seoul Central Prosecutors’ Office said it will also question Chung’s sister Yoo-kyung, vice president of Shinsegae group and Chung Ji-sun, president of Hyundai Department on same charges.
