Top confidant of South Korea's Moon jailed for faking 'likes' to help Moon


SEOUL (Reuters) - A top confidant of South Korea's President Moon Jae-in was jailed for two years on Wednesday under a computer crime law for posting fake "likes" on online posts favourable to Moon during his election campaign.

The sentence for Kim Kyung-soo, touted by some as a possible future presidential candidate, deals another blow to Moon, who faces plunging ratings, economic woes and accusations of corruption against some aides and political allies.
