SEOUL, July 27 (Yonhap) -- A former No. 2 government tax official was detained Saturday on suspicion that he took bribes from the beleaguered CJ Group.
The Seoul Central District Court issued an arrest warrant sought by state prosecutors against Heo Byung-yik, a former deputy commissioner at the National Tax Service.
Heo is suspected of pocketing US$300,000 in U.S. bills from the food and entertainment conglomerate while he was in office in late 2006.
