SEOUL, Aug. 13 (Yonhap) -- The former No. 1 and No. 2 officials of the national tax agency were indicted Tuesday on charges of accepting bribes worth about 300 million won (US$268,000) from food and entertainment conglomerate CJ Group while in office, prosecutors said.
Jeon Goon-pyo, 59, is accused of taking US$300,000 in U.S. bills from CJ Group officials in exchange for favors during a tax audit into the conglomerate in July 2006, shortly after he was named the commissioner of the National Tax Service (NTS), they said.
