Channel A Reports That Seungri Admitted To Soliciting Prostitution During Pretrial Detention Warrant Questioning
On May 18, Channel A’s “News A” announced that they had the exclusive report on Seungri’s statement during his pretrial detention warrant questioning on May 14.
The questioning on May 14 took place because the police had requested pretrial detention warrants for Seungri and Yoo In Suk. These warrants allow a suspect to be detained for longer than 48 hours. After questioning Seungri and Yoo In Suk, the court ultimately dismissed the police’s requests.
The suspicions listed on the police requests included mediating prostitution services, embezzlement, violating the Food Sanitation Act, and in Seungri’s case, purchasing prostitution services. According to reports, Seungri denied this last charge during two questionings by police, acknowledging that there had been sexual relations but not that he had purchased prostitution services.
However, Channel A’s report on May 18 stated that Seungri had admitted to soliciting prostitution during his pretrial detention warrant questioning.
He reportedly told the court, “It is true that I had sexual relations with a female employee of an adult entertainment establishment after paying money. I am now reflecting on my actions. As a celebrity, I found it hard to admit to suspicions of soliciting prostitution.”
Seungri continued to deny the other suspicions mentioned in the police warrant requests.
According to the police, they are planning to recommend Seungri’s case for prosecution sometime next week.
