陷公款旅游争议 韩国总统夫人不好当 Controversy over former South Korean first lady’s India trip

View descriptionShare

韩国前总统文在寅的夫人金正淑2018年独自出访印度,出席许王后纪念公园开工仪式,也会见了印度总理莫迪,完成了第一夫人外交。

不过这件事近期却在韩国闹得沸沸扬扬,原因是金正淑当年增加行程,

专程去参观印度著名古迹泰姬陵。她一行36人乘坐总统专机,四天的飞机餐费用据说超过6万新元,被质疑公款旅游。前总统文在寅不断为夫人解释,但争议还是不断扩大。

到底金正淑有没有滥用公款?这起争议冲击到文在寅本人的形象吗?文在寅会不会成为青瓦台魔咒的另一个受害者?

这期的早报播客《东谈西论》,听主持人韩咏红和《联合早报》首尔通讯员姜贵瑛解析金正淑公款旅游疑云。

Former South Korean President Moon Jae-in's wife, Kim Jung-sook, is facing accusations of misusing public funds during a 2018 trip to India. 

The controversy stems from an unplanned trip to Taj Mahal after attending the groundbreaking ceremony of Queen Heo Memorial Park and a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Kim Jung-sook, accompanied by a delegation of 36, travelled on the presidential plane, with the cost of in-flight meals over the four days reportedly exceeding US$45,000 (S$60,000). 

Former President Moon has defended his wife, but the controversy continues to grow.

In this episode of Global Heartbeat podcast, host Han Yong Hong and Lianhe Zaobao’s Seoul Correspondent Kang Gwi Young examines whether Kim Jung-sook has misused public funds, the impact on Moon Jae-in's legacy, and if he could become another victim of the "Blue House curse" of scandals plaguing former leaders. 

Hosted by Lianhe Zaobao’s Associate Editor, Han Yong Hong, Global Heartbeat is a Mandarin weekly news and current affairs podcast that is updated every Tuesday, 7.00 PM SGT. It is available on zaobao.sg, Apple Podcast, Google Podcasts, Spotify and other podcast platforms.
