Microdot’s Side Approaches Fraud Victims To Attempt Settlement, Victims Respond
Microdot’s side has reportedly attempted to reach an agreement with those accusing Microdot’s parents of fraud.
According to a report by SBS funE on January 11, a close relative of Microdot stated that Microdot’s side is approaching some of the victims to reach a settlement with them. The relative shared, “His parents are willing to settle the matter. Microdot and his brother Sanchez want to work in Korea, so they want to reach a settlement before it’s too late.”
SBS funE reported that the term of the agreement is repayment of the principal amount that was borrowed in 1999. In response, the victims said, “It’s hard not to be offended that, 20 years after they disappeared with a large sum of money during the IMF Crisis, they’re going to pay back just the original amount. Though it’s late, is it not a person’s duty to come to Korea and sincerely apologize to the victims and show a willingness to give responsible compensation?”
Previously, on November 20, Microdot’s parents were accused of borrowing several hundred million won (100 million won is approximately $89,000) from 10 different people in 1997 — including relatives, neighbors, and friends — and then leaving the country. Due to the allegations, Microdot stepped down from all programs.
Meanwhile, the police requested late November last year that Interpol issue a Red Notice for Microdot’s parents, who are currently residing in New Zealand. Microdot and Sanchez’s whereabouts currently remain unknown.
