S. Korea police want to arrest tycoon
by UPI

SEOUL - South Korean prosecutors Wednesday examined a police request for a warrant to arrest business tycoon Kim Seung-youn on kidnapping and assault charges.

Police say the charges stem from alleged abductions and beatings of workers of a Seoul bar to avenge an attack on Kim's son, Yonhap news agency reported.

Kim is chairman of South Korea's 12th-largest conglomerate, Hanwha Group. The report said he is suspected of ordering a group of men on March 8 to assault the bar employees who allegedly got involved in a fistfight with his 22-year-old son, Dong-won, at another bar.

Both the father and the son have denied the accusations, saying they never made a trip to the mountain area or used violence, Yonhap said.

Six of the bar workers told police Kim and his men allegedly took them to a construction site in a remote mountain area. They claimed Kim wielded a steel pipe and helped his son in beating them.

"It'll take less than three to four days before we file the arrest warrant (with the court)," prosecutor Park Cheol-jun was quoted as saying. "We'll check if there are any flaws in the arrest warrant handed over from the police."
