SEONGNAM, South Korea, Oct. 12 (Yonhap) -- Police raided the residence of Gyeonggi Province Gov. Lee Jae-myung and two other locations on Friday as part of a probe into allegations that he told a falsehood about his family during the June general elections.

The Bundang Police Station sent officers to search the property and confiscate evidence. They also raided parts of the Seongnam City Hall.

Lee served as Seongnam mayor before he won the Gyeonggi governorship in June.

He is accused of telling a lie in a television debate during the election period by denying that he used his authority to institutionalize his elder brother at a mental hospital.
