No honor among thieves

That goes in particular for former South Korean Presidents. From Korea Times-

Former President Roh Tae-woo has filed a lawsuit against his brother and nephew, accusing them of refusing to return a company that they set up with slush funds he entrusted to them two decades ago between 1988 and 1991, during his presidency.

According to the Seoul Central District Court, Roh said in the written complaint that he planned to take away his hidden assets from them to pay the 52 billion ($52 million) won fine imposed on him for corruption.

A refrigeration warehouse firm named Aurora CS in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, valued at 100 billion won, was allegedly established with Roh's slush fund.

This story should be a warning. If your crooked family gives you their ill gotten money or property, expect him or her to want it back one day. Don't you just love family quarrels?
