Travel ban issued to former DSME execs as fraud investigation hots up

Two former heads of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) have been handed a travel ban, as investigators look into accounting fraud at the Korean yard.

Nam Sang-tae, who headed the company from 2006 to 2012 and Ko Jae-ho, who succeeded Nam until last year, cannot leave South Korea while Seoul looks into the books of the yard, which has suffered huge losses as holes in its accounting were unearthed in recent months.
