Authorities in South Korea are accusing the leader of Sarang Jeil Church of ignoring coronavirus restrictions, including by organising a large anti-government rally on Saturday when gatherings are still not permitted.
More than 300 people from the church tested positive – South Korea’s biggest outbreak for months.
In two complaints filed by authorities, Jun Kwang-hoon is also accused of obstructing testing of church members by refusing to provide a list of followers.
Social distancing rules across the country were tightened on Sunday.
Elsewhere smaller clusters have been identified, including 30 cases linked to a Starbucks cafe in the city of Paju, north of Seoul.
