2. Prosecutors to investigate hardcore cartels without FTC accusation

기사 요약: 정부와 여당이 38년 만에 공정거래법을 전면 개정하기로 합의하면서 공정위가 갖고 있는 전속고발제를 폐지하고, 담합 과징금 한도를 최고 2배까지 올리기로 했다.

[1] South Korean prosecutors will have the authority to charge companies over hardcore cartels without accusations by the Fair Trade Commission, following a mutual agreement between the two organizations to abolish the national antitrust watchdog’s exclusive right to charge businesses, officials said Tuesday.

* charge: 고발하다, 기소하다
* hardcore: 강경한, 죄질이 무거운
* cartels: 카르텔 (이 기사의 경우 기업의 공동행위)
* accusations: 고발 (기사의 경우 ‘전속고발권’)
* mutual agreement: 공동 합의
* abolish: 폐지하다
* antitrust: 독점 금지
* exclusive: 독점적인

[2] In the current system, prosecutors can begin an investigation only if there is an official accusation by the FTC in the area of violation of fair trade laws.

* violation of fair trade law: 공정거래법 위반

[3] However, with growing complaints the antitrust authority has been too lenient in exercising its investigative power, President Moon Jae-in vowed during his election campaign in 2017 to abolish its exclusive right and distribute it to prosecutors.

* complaints: 불평사항들
* lenient: 관대하다
* exercise its investigative power: 수사권을 행사하다
* distribute: 분배하다

[4] “For hardcore cartels, the Ministry of Justice and the FTC have reached an agreement that prosecutors can investigate a case without an accusation from the FTC,” said Justice Minister Park Sang-ki during a ceremony Tuesday to sign an agreement on changes in the FTC’s investigative power.

* reach an agreement: 합의에 이르다
* investigate a case: 사건을 수사하다
