Report: South Korean Official Suspected in Scandal Commits Suicide
A former senior director of a South Korean government financial watchdog suspected in a major corruption scandal committed suicide on Tuesday, a report said.
Chang Rae-Chan, an ex-director general of the powerful Financial Supervisory Service (FSS), was found dead at an inn in Seoul, the Yonhap News Agency said.
