Seungri reportedly partially admits to gambling but denies illegal foreign transactions
After 12 hours and 20 minutes, Seungri has now completed police questioning over suspicions of habitual gambling and violating the Foreign Exchange Transactions Act.
After finishing questioning, Seungri stated to the press, “I told the truth about all the suspicions” and stated that he will continue to tell the truth in future questioning. He also said, “I apologize once again for causing concern.”
It’s reported that according to the police, during questioning Seungri admitted to some of the suspicions of gambling and also denied funding the gambling using “hwanchigi,” a term that refers to illegal practices surrounding foreign exchange transactions.
Seungri currently carries 9 charges against him, including prostitution, mediating prostitution, embezzlement, and destruction of evidence, dating back to June in relation to his ties with the Burning Sun scandal.
Yang Hyun Suk is scheduled to be questioned tomorrow over the charges levied against him, including habitual gambling, illegal foreign exchange, and his 2014 case where he allegedly solicited prostitution to foreign investors.
