Investigators from the South Korean prosecution arrest Kim Woo-choong (C), former chairman of the Daewoo Group, upon Kim's arrival at an airport in Inchon, west of Seoul, June 14, 2005. The man who built Daewoo into a global corporate powerhouse and fled South Korea when it collapsed with debts of $70 billion returned home on Tuesday and was immediately arrested at the airport. Kim Woo-choong, 69, returned almost six years after the collapse of Daewoo, one of South Korea's powerful chaebol or family owned conglomerates. Prosecutors have said he will most
likely face fraud charges for his suspected role in Daewoo's downfall.
