Customs officials search Korean Air headquarters

Chairman Cho Yang-ho arrives to testify at the second court hearing of his daughter Cho Hyun-ah also known as Heather Cho at the Seoul Western District court in Seoul

The younger daughter, Cho Hyun-min, a senior vice president at Korean Air, is being investigated by police, following an alleged assault.

The boss of Korean Air has apologised for the "immature" behaviour of his two daughters and announced their resignation from the official positions they held at the company following separate controversial incidents.

On April 22, Hanjin Group chairman Cho Yang-ho apologized to the general public for the misconduct of his two daughters.

"As chairman of Korean Air, as well as a father, I feel awful about the immature actions of my daughters".

He also said Korean Air will create a new vice chairman position to be filled by someone outside of the Cho family and will strengthen the board's role in company operations.

She is also suspected of verbally insulting an employee at the Incheon-based Grand Hyatt hotel affiliated with Hanjin Group and later having the worker fired for not recognizing her and calling her an old woman.

Guentzel scores four goals as Penguins eliminate Flyers
Malkin's knee injury had a ripple effect on the lineup, although the return of Patric Hornqvist somewhat softened the blow. Guentzel had the third four-goal playoff game in team history, joining Mario Lemieux in 1989 and Kevin Stevens in 1991.

Triggered by Cho's youngest child Hyun-min reportedly throwing water at an agency official during a meeting, the "water rage" spread fast inside and outside the country, raising questions as to unqualified chaebol scions in executive posts. "I apologise to the people", Cho said to the wire. Cho Hyun-min lives in the chairman's home, while her sister and brother have their own homes.

Cho Hyun-ah, the chairman's oldest daughter, threw the infamous "nut rage" tantrum in 2014 that forced a taxiing plane to return to its gate and landed her in jail for three months.

The group will also establish a compliance committee that includes external figures as members to "prevent reoccurrence of similar incidents".

"We have already secured evidence related to the Cho family's smuggling and customs evasion", said an official from the Korea Customs Service.

Media reports cited anonymous tips from airline employees that the Cho family smuggled foreign goods into South Korea by disguising them as corporate assets.

Cho's apology came amid the air carrier facing its worst public sentiment following a series of revelations that family members had abused power against those working under them. The items range from sausages and fruits to luxury lingerie, clothes and furniture.
