New law mandates high-level officials disclose their assetsHigh-level officials at six state-run operators of nuclear power plants will be required to make their financial assets public starting today, the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy said yesterday.
The move is intended as a follow-up measure after a corruption scandal last year involving state-run nuclear power plant operators, including Korea Hydro and Nuclear Corporation.
About 1,500 officials in posts higher than a department director must report their property status to the government. Violators could face jail time or a fine up to 10 million won ($9,883).
