Yang Hyun Suk And Seungri Booked On Suspicions Of Gambling

At a press conference on August 14, a representative of the police revealed that Yang Hyun Suk and Seungri have been booked on suspicions of habitual gambling [overseas] and added, “We will investigate in accordance with the [legal] procedure.”

Regarding suspicions of Yang Hyun Suk and Seungri raising their gambling funds through “hwanchigi,” a term that refers to illegal practices surrounding foreign exchange transactions, the police commented, “We are reviewing the possibility of booking them on the additional charge of violating the Foreign Exchange Transactions Act.”

The police continued, “We cannot reveal the specifics of the criminal acts including the frequency and amount of money as there is potential for the destruction of evidence.”

On suspicions of Yang Hyun Suk mediating prostitution services, the police responded, “There are conflicting testimonies regarding the suspicions of prostitution mediation, so we are continuing to investigate.”

it's fucked up that they might end up going to jail for gambling but not for prostitution.

Wouldn't gambling overseas be a problem for the police of the country where the gambling took place (if it's illegal there)? Unless they're the ones investigating and requested help from SK police.

Is anyone keeping track how much jail time they might be getting? What's the possible maximum if they get convictions for prostitution and gambling and hwanchigi and everything else they've been investigated for?

Under SK law, Korean citizens are prohibited from gambling both on domestic and foreign soil, so 'gambling abroad' is an offense local police does take an interest in.

Huh, didn't know that. Seems a bit (quite) restricting, but I guess the government does what the government wants.

They also allegedly smuggled large sums of money to avoid taxation, it seems

I'm indifferent to gambling, but if that is what it takes to get Seungri in prison, yes please

may all evidence lead to more and more public knowledge of all their crimes
kcaomei 14th-Aug-2019 07:34 pm (UTC)
YAWN i'm so bored and tired of hearing about all their crimes with zero consequence. they're both criminals who should be locked up... sky is blue, water is wet... incarcerate them already
lizanka23 14th-Aug-2019 07:49 pm (UTC)
seriously. and with all the crimes they've committed they should be in there for a long time. i don't want to hear something like 7 years for something like 20 charges already

I read that as incinerate at first, but I’m ok with either option.
lizanka23 14th-Aug-2019 07:50 pm (UTC)
yeah they sure are taking their sweet time to investigate everything while YG and Seungri can get rid of evidence. just lock them up and throw away the key

Korean law really hates women eh. Nothing when it comes to all of their other crimes but gambling is the final straw. Ok.
