Here is the latest on the ROK election influencing scandal:
A mid-ranking official of the military cyber warfare unit will be indicted on Tuesday on charges of launching an online smear campaign to influence last year’s presidential election, the defense ministry said.
The director of the cyber command’s psychological warfare team, identified only by his surname Lee, will face indictment without physical detention for ordering his subordinates to post politically biased writings and to destroy evidence, according to the military prosecution.
The indictment came after the military investigation team announced earlier this month its two-month probe into the case, which found the mid-ranking official Lee, along with 10 other lower-level officials, had posted some 286,000 writings against then opposition presidential candidate Moon Jae-in and his party on social networking sites.
It is in violation of their obligation as public officials to stay neutral, according to the prosecution. [Yonhap]
