Police Identify Officer With Suspected Connection To Seungri, Jung Joon Young, And More
It was first reported on March 13 that there appear to have been potential connections, and the Commissioner General of the Korean National Police Agency backed up these allegations. Additional messages and evidence of corruption were revealed by SBS.
Suspected figures including Kang Shin Myung, former Commissioner General of the Korean National Police Agency, and Lee Sang Won, former Commissioner of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, denied involvement.
Seungri, Jung Joon Young, former Yuri Holdings CEO Yoo In Suk, and a former club employee were questioned from March 14 to 15, and they identified the “police chief” in question to be someone of senior superintendent rank.
The police has summoned senior superintendent officer “A” as a suspect. He is being questioned about interacting with the individuals involved including Seungri and Jung Joon Young and whether he misused his power to assist them.
Disciplinary action for “A” will be considered once the results of the investigation are released.
