    SOUTH Korean Justice Minister, Cho Kuk, on Monday resigned over an escalating corruption scandal barely a month after being appointed.

    Dpa reports that the opposition had accused him of misconduct as his family was being investigated on allegations of questionable financial transactions.

    Kuk, 54, said in a statement that he would resign and not be a burden to President Moon Jae-In who had appointed him in September. Jae-In accepted his resignation.

    Jae-In, however, apologised for causing national discord over Kuk’s appointment.

    Earlier, tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets to demand Kuk’s dismissal as well as Jae-In’s resignation.

    Kuk’s family was being investigated on suspicion of investing in a holding company suspected of involvement in market manipulation and illegal transactions. (Dailypost)
