Promotes quick freeze on accounts suspected of stock price manipulation... Reporting reward also increased to 3 billion won
Financial Services Commission announces improvement measures to respond to unfair transactions... Increase the level of sanctions and strengthen organization, investigation, detection, and cooperation
Financial authorities, exchanges, and prosecutors operate a collaboration system... “Eradicating unfair trade through zero tolerance principles”
[Inside the case / Reporter Moon Hong-cheol] = Financial authorities are pursuing a plan to quickly freeze accounts suspected of unfair transactions such as stock price manipulation.
Additionally, to encourage active reporting of unfair transactions, the limit on reward payments will be increased from a maximum of 2 billion won to 3 billion won.
On the 21st, the Financial Services Commission held a commemorative ceremony with related organizations to respond to unfair transactions to mark the 10th anniversary of the launch of the Capital Market Investigation Team, and announced a plan to improve the unfair transaction response system that included the above.
Domestic unfair trade methods are evolving, and as illegal activities that are difficult to detect using existing methods increase, it is becoming increasingly difficult for financial authorities to detect them in advance.
Accordingly, financial authorities diversified their monitoring and investigation of unfair transactions and increased the intensity of sanctions.
First, financial authorities are promoting the introduction of an asset freeze system. The asset freeze system prevents accounts suspected of unfair trading from being misused for additional crimes or siphoning off illegal profits by prohibiting new financial transactions or asset disposal.
In Korea, prosecutors can currently freeze assets with court permission under the Criminal Proceeds Concealment Control Act, but financial authorities have no authority. In the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, financial authorities have the authority to freeze assets.
The reward system for reporting unfair transactions will also be reformed. The limit of rewards paid to reporters who help prevent unfair trade practices will be increased from 2 billion won to 3 billion won.
In addition, anonymous reporting is introduced, such as reporting accounting fraud or violating the Anti-Graft Act. see .
In addition, the current source of the reward is the supervisory burden borne by financial companies, but starting next year, it will be changed to be paid from the government budget.
In order to detect unfair transactions early, we decided to strengthen cyber inspections targeting SNS, including YouTube, online bulletin boards, and reading rooms.
Exchanges will also expand the market manipulation analysis period from short-term (up to 100 days) to long-term (6 months, 1 year, etc.) to respond to new types of unfair transactions.
Violators of unfair trade regulations will be banned from capital market transactions, including new stock transactions and account openings, for 10 years, and will also be restricted from appointing executives at listed companies.
Sanctions for unfair trade fines are also being promoted. We plan to revise the Enforcement Decree of the Capital Markets Act and prepare a final draft through detailed operational process consultations between relevant agencies.
Financial authorities decided to expand the organization and manpower to respond to unfair transactions and strengthen the collaboration system between institutions. We plan to establish a council of investigation and hearing agencies centered around the Securities and Futures Commission and involving the Financial Services Commission, Financial Supervisory Service, exchanges, and prosecutors to manage and discuss major cases.
Financial Services Commission Chairman Kim Joo-hyun said, “Related organizations will become ‘one team’ and exert all possible capabilities to eradicate unfair transactions in the capital market with a zero-tolerance principle.”
