The National Tax Service is known to have launched a special tax investigation into the tax evasion allegations of Lee Sang-jik, a former lawmaker and founder of Eastar Jet.
According to the industry, the Seoul Regional Tax Service Fourth Investigation Bureau is investigating allegations that Lee’s family evaded income tax, corporate tax and gift tax.
The 4th Investigation Bureau of the Seoul Metropolitan Government is in charge of irregular and planned tax investigations, not regular tax investigations.
Earlier, in April last year, the Public Transportation Workers Union filed a report with the Seoul Metropolitan Government containing allegations of embezzlement and tax evasion by Lee.
At that time, the union considered the motion to arrest former lawmaker Lee and Anjin Accounting Corporation’s Eastar Jet investigation report submitted to the National Assembly, and reported that the former lawmaker’s family embezzled or embezzled funds using six to seven companies.
The union says former lawmaker Lee owned IMSC, which actually controlled Eastar Jet, under a borrowed name, that he passed on Eastar Jet shares to his children at a low price and gifted them expediently, and that the former lawmaker Lee used corporate funds like Eastar Jet and Eastar Holdings for personal use I pointed out to him what it was for.
Former Congressman Lee served in the 19th and 21st National Assembly as a member of the Democratic Party, but was sentenced to 1 year and 4 months in prison and 2 years’ probation by the Supreme Court in May 2021 for violating the Public Official Election Act and lost his position as a member of the National Assembly.
