The prosecution on Friday filed charges against former Justice Minister ChoKuk in connection with allegations that he abused his power to suspend an inquiry into a former Busan vice mayor.
The Seoul Eastern District Prosecutors' Office charged Cho with abuse of power without physically detaining him, three weeks after the prosecution's request for a warrant to arrest him was rejected by a local court.
Prosecutors accused Cho of abusing his power in 2017, as then-presidential secretary for civil affairs, to end his office's special inspection into Yoo Jae-soo, who was arrested on bribery charges Dec. 13, despite substantial evidence against him.
Yoo was under inspection by the presidential office – of which Cho was in charge – on suspicion that he took bribes from four businesspeople when he served as a director general at the Financial Services Commission in 2017.
Cho informed the FSC of the alleged irregularities surrounding Yoo instead of sending the case to the prosecution, which prosecutors consider abuse of power on Cho's part and an attempt to help Yoo avoid punishment. Yoo later resigned from the post, and in 2018, he became Busan's vice mayor in charge of economic affairs.
Cho has denied any criminal responsibility, saying the decision was within his discretion as presidential secretary for civil affairs.
Cho was already sent to trial on Dec. 31 for allegedly being involved in irregularities surrounding his children's admission into college and dubious financial investments.
Cho's wife, Chung Kyung-shim, is also on trial in connection with the allegations.

South Korea indicts former justice minister and Moon confidant
SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korean prosecutors indicted former Justice Minister ChoKuk on Tuesday on a dozen charges including bribery, two months after he resigned over a scandal involving family investment and university admissions for his children. The accusations are a setback for President Moon Jae-in after the liberal leader named Cho, a former top aide, to the cabinet post to lead reform of the prosecutors' office, which critics saw as being susceptible to political pressure.
The Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office indicted Cho and his wife on Tuesday morning over family investment and using their position to gain admissions for his children, it said in a statement. Cho faces a dozen charges, including bribery, document fraud, manipulation of evidence and public service ethics law violations, it added.
Together with his wife, Chung Kyung-shim, he is being prosecuted for falsifying documents regarding family investments and efforts to gain university admissions.
Cho will remain free as he stands trial. Chung, who is also a university professor, was arrested in October on the same charges. Cho's lawyer, Kim Chil-joon, did not immediately respond to telephone calls or a text message to seek comment.
The Yonhap news agency quoted him as saying the prosecutors had handed down "a political indictment based on their imagination and fiction". The resignation and indictment of Cho were a spectacular downfall for the former star legal sCholar known for progressive thinking who was one of Moon's closest political allies and considered by some as a potential presidential successor.
Moon came to power in 2017 promising to clean up corruption after weeks of large street protests led to the impeachment of predecessor Park Geun-hye. Cho stepped down in October after just one month in office, saying the graft scandal around his family had become a political burden for Moon's government.
His appointment was followed by street protests for and against the president on a scale not seen since 2017, hitting Moon's public support ratings.

S. Korean presidential top secretary refutes civilian surveillance claim
SEOUL, Dec. 31 (UPI) – A South Korean top presidential aide dismissed allegations that the presidential office monitored civilians for political purposes.
ChoKuk, a presidential secretary for civil affairs, said Monday that the presidential office never surveilled civilians or created a list of people who are critical of the government.
"Unlike the previous government, the Moon Jae-in government never surveils civilians or creates a blacklist," he told lawmakers at a televised parliamentary session on Monday.
The previous government was under fire for civilian surveillance.
