Taken into custody ­


Kim Hye-kyung, 52, the CEO of Korea Pharmaceuticals, is escorted from Incheon International Airport to Incheon District Prosecutors’ Office yesterday for questioning. Kim is believed to have handled the assets of Yoo Byung-eun, the late patriarch of the family that owned the Sewol ferry. She was arrested in Virginia on Sept. 4. The prosecution also suspects she embezzled tens of billions of won from the religious sect Yoo co-founded. [NEWS1]
