Seoul Seizes Documents Linked to Northrop Case: South Korea's Justice Ministry, acting at the request of U.S. officials, impounded bank account papers involving the family of the late Park Chong Kyu, a one-time political power broker and presidential aide, sources said. Northrop Corp., the Los Angeles-based aerospace company, hired Park as a sales agent in the early 1980s. A U.S. grand jury is investigating whether Northrop violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act when it entered into an alleged payoff scheme with Park to sell F-20 jet fighters to South Korea.
