SEJONG, Dec. 12 (Yonhap) -- The head of Kolmar Korea Co., a South Korean cosmetics original development manufacturing company, has been named among 30 tax dodgers, tax authorities said Wednesday.

The National Tax Service made public the names of Yoon Dong-han, chairman of Kolmar Korea, and 29 other individuals, as well as the amount of taxes they have avoided, on its website in an attempt to pressure them into paying their dues.

Yoon, 72, has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for avoiding taxes worth 3.67 billion won (US$3.2 million).

A court suspended the sentence for three years, however, meaning that he will not have to serve prison time if he stays out of trouble during that period.

Yoon was not immediately reached for comment.
