Senior Police Officer Booked On Additional Charge Of Receiving Bribes From Seungri
On April 1, it was revealed that Seungri gifted three BIGBANG concert tickets to Senior Superintendent Yoon.
The officer was previously booked for leaking official confidential information, and he has now been booked for violating the Improper Solicitation and Graft Act as well.
The Improper Solicitation and Graft Act (also referred to as the Kim Young Ran Act) is an anti-corruption law that prohibits individuals from giving and receiving bribes.
Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s Provincial Special Detective Division confirmed that Senior Superintendent Yoon did not pay for a part of his portion of the expenses from a meal and golf game with Seungri and Yoo In Suk (former CEO of Yuri Holdings). While receiving police questioning, Seungri admitted to gifting the officer with tickets.
The police added that they have not yet booked Senior Superintendent Yoon’s wife Chief Superintendent Kim, who also received the tickets. A source from the police said, “To book her on charges of violating the Improper Solicitation and Graft Act, we must figure out the amount [that was exchanged], and further investigation is needed.”
Meanwhile, on the same day, Seungri and Yoo In Suk were booked for embezzling funds of their club Monkey Museum.
