Last year, police uniforms were changed for the first time in 10 years. Some suspect that Choi Soon-sil played a role in this.
Chief Jang Shin-jung of the Police Human Rights Center argued, "The National Police Agency forcedly pushed forward with the uniform change in 2015," and that "It must be revealed whether the fabric supplier in fact is Bogwang Textiles of Daegu."
The president of Bogwang Textiles, also a proportional representative from the Saenuri Party of the Daegu City Council, was suspected of having a close relationship with Choi.
Park Young-soo's special prosecution team, currently investigating the Choi scandal, has also taken note of such suspicions and is reviewing whether they will investigate the issue.
