South Korean prosecutors are seeking to detain the former executive at Korean Air Lines who forced a flight to return over a bag of macadamia nuts.

They are also investigating an executive over attempts to cover up the “nut rage” case.

Seoul western prosecutors’ office said that Cho Hyun-ah faces charges including inflight violence and changing a flight route.

The daughter of Korean Air’s chairman earlier this month resigned as vice president at the airline as public outrage mounted after she forced a plane to return and kicked off a flight attendant because the nuts were served in a bag, not on a plate.

The South Korean transport ministry said it had asked prosecutors to investigate a ministry official suspected of leaking secrets about the ministry’s investigation to the current airline executive.
