Prosecutors raided Korea Creative Content Agency (KOCCA) in Naju, South Jeolla Province, on March 6 to investigate the alleged corruption of an employee. The employee is known to be suspected of taking bribes from outside sources.
The Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office dispatched seven investigators to KOCCA to investigate Kim, a deputy director of KOCCA, on charges of personal corruption in his job.
Investigators have secured related documents on Kim and personal items such as personal PCs. The target of the search is known to be the New Content Team within the regional business headquarters. The department supports production of virtual reality and experiential contents.
KOCCA said it will actively cooperate with the prosecution`s investigation. "We are currently investigating the case and we are looking into the details," the agency said. "We are planning to actively cooperate with the prosecution so that the facts can be revealed without any suspicion of personal corruption."
"We also plan to reveal the truth about the entire business related to the employee concerned and take stern measures, including strong disciplinary actions, based on the results of the investigation by the prosecution," it added.
