The former chief of Korea's spy agency is expected to be charged with interfering with last December's presidential election by ordering agents to engage in political campaigning online.
The Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office says Won Sei-hoon, the former director of the National Intelligence Service, will be indicted for violating the country's election and intelligence agency laws.
The laws ban use of public authority to engage in political campaigning, and prohibit intelligence personnel from intervening in politics.
