Digging deeper into a web of shadowy bribery allegations,... prosecutors are questioning Lee Sang-deuk , the brother of ex-President Lee Myung-bak over allegations he took illicit funds from the country's intelligence agency.
The 83-year old former lawmaker showed up at the prosecutors' office this morning,... after postponing the initially scheduled date,... upon his request citing lack of preparation and health issues.
Prosecutors believe the National Intelligence Service handed millions of dollars of its special activity funds to Lee since early 2011 when he was a sitting lawmaker for then-ruling political party, and when Lee Myung-bak was president.
In another, but not completely separate case,... the former president's nephew,.. Lee Dong-hyung was also questioned by prosecutors this week, over his suspected involvement in the alleged creation of the ex-president's slush fund.
