Money Lenders In Shoo’s Gambling Debt Case Release Statement
The plaintiffs’ side in Shoo’s gambling debt case recently made a statement about the incident.
On August 9, the plaintiffs’ lawyer, Park Hee Jung, stated, “Since mid-June, Shoo blocked off all contact with the plaintiffs, and we haven’t been able to contact her at all since then. Even after the due date passed for her payments, we could not contact her.”
The lawyer continued, “Shoo said through her lawyers, ‘I was played by the plaintiffs,’ and stated a position that slandered the plaintiffs. This is not true. After they saw the news reports, they were deeply hurt. Paradise Casino is a lawfully run enterprise, so it’s not a place where people can ‘play’ someone. The plaintiffs are regular people that have nothing to do with casinos.
“In response to Shoo’s desperate pleas, the plaintiffs reluctantly lent her money multiple times. They lent her that money believing her words that she would pay them back in time, and that she was plenty capable of paying them back.”
The plaintiff’s lawyer stated again that both plaintiff A and plaintiff B, who lent her 350 million won (approximately $309,839) and 250 million won (approximately $221,280) respectively, were the victims in this case. They continued on to say, “As the victims of a crime, they justly exercised their right to file lawsuits.”
Finally, they said, “If [she continues] to slander the plaintiffs, we will take additional action [against Shoo].”
Shoo is currently under fire for borrowing large sums of money for the alleged purpose of gambling it off at a casino.
