Sports ministry discovers budget misuse at football governing body
Yonhap News

The ministry said Cho Chung-yun, former president of the KFA, brought his wife on three business trips between July 2011 and May 2012, and used 30 million won (US$25,670) of the KFA's money to cover her travel expenses. The ministry added that Cho, who served in the top post from 2009 to 2013, later had an advisory role with the KFA, and the football organization still paid him 144 million won for 17 months though he didn't do any work.

Eighteen former and current KFA employees used corporate cards at places like karaoke bars, massage shops, skin care shops and golf clubs for private purpose, wasting 200 million won from the organization's budget, the ministry said.

The ministry also found that the KFA had a "special hiring" for six employees behind closed doors, although its rules state that workers should be hired through an open recruitment system.
