    JoongAng Ilbo learns 100 documents were ordered to be destroyed|home|newslist1
    About a month after the 2007 presidential election, former President Roh Moo-hyun ordered his aides to discard the original transcript of his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-il at a Pyongyang summit, according to an exclusive report by the JoongAng Ilbo.

    And more records were deleted by the president around the time he left office, the report said.

    From Roh’s electronic records system, prosecutors have recovered a document showing he ordered aides to delete the original transcript of the summit meeting after the 2007 presidential election, which was won by a large margin by Lee Myung-bak of the Grand National Party, which was the opposition during Roh’s term.

    “The original transcript recovered by the prosecution was deleted some time in January 2008, about a month after Lee won the election,” said a government official speaking on the condition of anonymity.
