Police on Wednesday night in Paju, Gyeonggi, arrested the employee of dental implant manufacturer Osstem Implant at the center of Korea's largest case of embezzlement.
 
embezzlement: 횡령
 
경찰이 수요일 밤 경기도 파주에서 상장사 역대 최대규모 횡령 혐의를 받는 오스템임플란트 직원을 검거했다.
 
 
 
The suspect, a 45-year-old employee of Osstem Implant who has been identified only by his surname Lee, was taken into custody on suspicion of embezzling 188 billion won ($158 million) from his company.
 
suspect: 혐의자
identify: (신원 등을)확인하다
take into custody: ~를 구금시키다
 
경찰은 회삿돈 1,880억원을 횡령한 혐의로 오스템임플란트 직원 이모(45)씨를 체포했다.
 
 
 
He was caught not in the apartment where he lived, but in a fourth-floor unit in the same building that was recently vacated by another tenant.
 
vacate: 비우다
tenant: 세입자, 임차인
 
이씨는 자신이 거주하던 아파트에서 붙잡힌 게 아니라 다른 세입자가 살다가 최근 떠나서 비어있는 다른 층 아파트에서 붙잡혔다.
 
 
 
Lee was reported by Osstem on Dec. 31 for embezzling over 90 percent of the company’s equity of 205 billion won while he was working as the manager of its finance department, according to a regulatory filing submitted by the company.
 
equity: 자기자본
regulatory: 규제의, 감독의
filing: 서류
 
오스템임플란트가 감독기관에 제출한 서류에 따르면, 이씨는 재정담당 관리자로 일하면서 회사 자기자본 2,050억원의 90% 이상을 횡령한 혐의로 금융당국에 고발됐다.
 
 
 
Police said Lee has already admitted to the embezzlement. According to Osstem, Lee transferred company money to his personal bank account and forged bank statements to show that the funds were still in the company account.
 
transfer: 옮기다, 이동하다
forge: 위조하다
bank statement: 입출금내역서
 
경찰은 이씨가 이미 횡렴 혐의를 인정했다고 말했다.
 
 
 
오스템에 따르면, 이씨는 회삿돈을 개인 은행계좌로 이전한 뒤 그 돈이 여전히 회사 은행계좌에 들어있는 것처럼 보이게 하는 입출금내역서를 위조했다.
 
 
 
Osstem Implant's stock has been suspended from trading on the Kosdaq market in light of the huge embezzlement.
 
suspend: 정지하다
in light of~ :~에 비추어
 
대형 횡령 사건이 발생하자 오스템임플란트 주식은 코스닥 시장에서 거래가 정지됐다.
