BUSAN, Sept. 2 (Yonhap) -- Prosecutors on Friday summoned a ruling party lawmaker over allegations he received bribes from a local businessman in return for business favors.

The Busan District Prosecutors' Office called in Rep. Kim Han-pyo of the Saenuri Party as a suspect to question him over suspicions his close aide received kickbacks from a de facto owner of a local construction firm.

The exact volume of the money and when it was allegedly transacted have not been made clear.

Prosecutors said they are investigating whether the lawmaker was involved in the matter of his aide unlawfully obtaining the money.

Three weeks ago, the prosecutors raided the lawmaker's district office in the country's southern port city of Busan and confiscated accounting books.
