Proportional lawmaker-elect Yoon Mee-hyang clarifies controversies surrounding her and her civic group during a press conference at the National Assembly Friday
Yoon Mee-hyang, a proportional lawmaker-elect from the ruling Democratic Party, has denied all accusations against her and a civic group she used to head up.
Before Yoon was elected as a proportional lawmaker in April, she was the head of the Korean Council for Justice and Remembrance for the Issues of Military Sexual Slavery by Japan, which supports so-called comfort women victims.
While admitting to receiving donations through her personal bank account and apologizing for the action, she denied during a press conference earlier this afternoon allegations that she bought property in Anseong, Gyeonggi Province for a value that is 400 million won higher than the market price.
She went on to dismiss more accusations, including concealing knowledge on the outcome of a 2015 Seoul-Tokyo deal on the sex slavery issue.
Yoon added she would clear up all remaining doubts through prosecutorial investigation and further explanation.
