General probed on spy chargeSouth Korea’s military and intelligence agencies are investigating a two-star Army general accused of leaking classified military information to North Korea, officials said yesterday.
The general, identified only as Kim, allegedly handed over classified information related to military management and operations between 2005 and 2007 to a former South Korean intelligence agent recruited by North Korea, according to prosecutors and investigators at the Defense Security Command (DSC).
The investigation came after prosecutors and the National Intelligence Service Thursday arrested two South Koreans - a former executive of a defense firm and a former secret agent - on charges of giving military secrets to the North. Yonhap
