On June 12, it was reported that B.I allegedly attempted to purchase illegal drugs from an individual referred to as “A” in 2016. During an initial investigation, “A” testified that they had delivered the LSD to B.I, but when questioned again, “A” changed their testimony to say that while they had discussed the possible purchase of drugs, they did not actually obtain any drugs for B.I.
The report suspected Yang Hyun Suk of having attempted to influence the testimony of “A,” but YG issued a statement saying that they only met with “A” to check their testimony about B.I.
A news article from Newsis on June 13 states that “A” anonymously submitted a document to the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission about YG Entertainment covering up the case using their ties with the police on June 4. The document was submitted through lawyer Bang Jung Hyun, who previously also sent the KakaoTalk conversation data between Jung Joon Young, Seungri, and others to the Commission on behalf of a whistleblower.
The document reportedly contains information about B.I and illegal drugs, YG’s intervention with the police investigation on “A” in 2016, suspicions of ties between the police and YG, and other information on additional situations that have not been revealed yet.
A source familiar with the case stated, “As far as I know, ‘A’ decided to submit the document despite the danger of being punished [for drug use] after seeing that the suspicions of Burning Sun’s ties with the police were not clearly resolved.”
The Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission will reportedly review the report through a task force team, and if they find the data credible, they will transfer the case to the police or prosecution. Traditionally, reporting to the Commission allows the whistleblower to remain anonymous and request protection.
