Former U.N. chief Ban unaware of details of U.S. bribery charges against relatives - spokesman

SEOUL (Reuters) - Former U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is unaware of the circumstances surrounding bribery charges laid by U.S. prosecutors against two of his relatives, Ban’s spokesman Lee Do-woon told reporters on Wednesday.

Ban’s brother and nephew have been indicted on U.S. charges that they engaged in a scheme to bribe a Middle Eastern official in connection with the attempted $800 million sale of a building complex in Vietnam.
