Federal prosecutors say relatives of South Korea's corrupt former dictator have agreed to forfeit more than $1 million linked to bribes he was paid.
The Department of Justice on Wednesday said the money was laundered in the U.S. by relatives of ex-President Chun Doo-hwan.
Chun was convicted of corruption, mutiny and treason in Korea and sentenced to death. He was later pardoned and ordered to pay back more than $200 million in bribes but said he was broke.
A Justice Department spokesman says the settlement money comes from a house the family sold in Newport Beach, California, and an investment they made in Pennsylvania.
Prosecutors will recommend returning the money to South Korea.
A lawyer for the Chun family wouldn't comment on the settlement.
