No Cut News reports officer received special promotion in 2016 following investigation of B.I's case

A new report from CBS No Cut News states that Lieutenant “B,” the police officer in charge of the 2016 drug case involving B.I and “A” (later publicly revealed to be Han Seo Hee) had received a special promotion for how he handled the case.

According to several sources, Lieutenant “B” from the Yongin Dongbu Police Station was promoted one grade in rank around the end of 2016. The special promotion was a result of Lieutenant “B’s” eradication of drug-related crimes including Han Seo Hee’s case. A police source shared, “The special promotion was based on how he handled Han Seo Hee’s case.”

This indicates that the police believed the investigation on Han Seo Hee was carried out well, which is contrary to the recent suspicions of insufficient investigation.

In a call with CBS No Cut News, the head of Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Agency’s narcotics investigation team explained, “Lieutenant ‘B’ arrested 53 drug offenders from May through October 2016, and Han Seo Hee is only one of them. The reason he got promoted is not due to [Han Seo Hee] and B.I’s case.”

Han Seo Hee was arrested and questioned on August 22, 2016. Lieutenant “B” carried out the first and second questioning sessions on the same day and requested a pretrial detention warrant for Han Seo Hee. However, the request was denied by the prosecution, and Han Seo Hee was sent back home. Lieutenant “B” states that Han Seo Hee mentioned B.I’s name right before the pretrial detention warrant was denied and had to be sent home before any more information could be obtained. She attended her third questioning with a lawyer and changed her testimony.

The police claim they were planning to begin investigating B.I but were instructed by the Suwon District Prosecutor’s Office to forward the case to them. As a result, the police forwarded an investigative report mentioning drug-related suspicions on B.I and did not carry out further investigations. Prosecutors deny having instructed the police to forward the case and state that the investigative report they received suggested that a separate internal investigation was being carried out by the police.

Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Agency has formed a special task force to look into any flaws in the past investigations. It was reported that they are also investigating how the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s narcotics investigation team carried out their investigation on the 2017 case involving BIGBANG’s T.O.P and Han Seo Hee. At the time, Han Seo was reportedly also asked about B.I, but no further investigations took place after the questioning.

A police source shared, “We will thoroughly look into various possibilities including the [police’s] dereliction of duties.”

'We will look into possible corruption links within the police force, and as we are the police we determine that no such links exist".

This is the BS case all over again.

Seriously. This is getting so demoralizing. Eff their special “investigative task force” ...it’s like a decorative bandage to show how they’re totally treating a pus filled wound .

They're not even trying to treat it, they're sticking a used band-aid over it making it worse. But as long as it gives them a few more months/years, they don't give a shit.

this all sounds so dodgy. the media needs to keep exposing them for their shit. doesn't look like much is being done about any of this but at least the public knows

I shouldn't be but I continue to be stunned at no one publicly suggesting an independent investigation over the BS scandal or even YGE. Who is everyone afraid of? This makes The Godfather II seem childish.
