SEOUL, Aug. 25 (Yonhap) -- State prosecutors will question a former publicity official of the ruling Saenuri Party on Thursday over his alleged breach of the Political Fund Act, investigators said.

Cho Dong-won, who was in charge of the party's publicity headquarters ahead of the April 13 parliamentary elections, is alleged to have demanded an advertisement firm produce election campaign videos, worth 80 million won (US$71,498), for free, which is in violation of the funding act.

The prosecutorial probe opened after the National Election Commission filed a complaint against Cho, his colleague and the head of the ad firm on July 8.
