President Park nominates former deputy prosecutor chief as new prosecutor general
President Park Geun-hye has nominated former deputy prosecutor general Kim Jin-tae as the new prosecution chief.
Kim, who has also served as the head of the Seoul High Prosecutors' Office and the Seoul Northern District Prosecutors' Office, led high-profile corruption and bribery cases involving former president Roh Tae-woo and former president Kim Dae-jung's son.
Senior presidential public relations secretary Lee Jung-hyun says the prosecutor general nominee has abudant experience in the field and is well-known for his integrity.
The latest nomination comes a month after former prosecutor general Chae Dong-wook resigned over allegations he had a child out of wedlock.
Kim's parliamentary confirmation hearing is expected to begin as early as the second week of November.
