Police Provide Update On Investigation Of Yang Hyun Suk And Seungri’s Gambling Suspicions
It was revealed on August 8 that there was evidence of Yang Hyun Suk and Seungri gambling habitually at a hotel casino in Las Vegas. The two individuals were booked on August 14, and the police conducted a five-hour search and seizure of YG Entertainment’s headquarters on August 17.
On August 19, the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s Sophisticated Crime Investigation Division held a press conference and provided updates on the ongoing investigations.
A police officer shared, “We are continuing [to analyze the data obtained from the search and seizure of YG Entertainment’s headquarters]. Once the analyses are complete, we will call [Yang Hyun Suk and Seungri] in, but it will most likely not happen within this week.”
There is a possibility that the questioning will take place behind closed doors. The officer shared, “We will have to discuss whether or not to summon them publicly.”
Regarding the possibility that company funds may have been used for gambling, the officer stated, “We are not looking into [the possibility] of embezzlement in relation to the gambling suspicions.”
The police officer also addressed Yang Hyun Suk’s prostitution mediation suspicions, saying, “We will finish analyzing the bank accounts [related to the prostitution mediation] as soon as possible. We will question him when we summon him for [the gambling suspicions].”
