Regarding the suspicion that Ki Seong-yong (34) of FC Seoul, a professional soccer player, sexually assaulted a junior in elementary school, the police concluded that there was not enough evidence. Those who raised suspicions and were sued for defamation were also acquitted. It’s been about 2 years since the police investigation.
According to the police on the 17th, the Seocho Police Station in Seoul said, “There is insufficient evidence” in relation to the case in which Ki Sung-yong filed a complaint against two people, including Mr. I made a decision.스포츠토토
A police official also explained that “the relevant evidence was considered insufficient” as to whether Ki Sung-yong had committed sexual violence.
In February 2021, Mr. A and others claimed that they were sexually assaulted by senior player B from January to June 2000, when they were living in a soccer club at an elementary school in Jeonnam. They did not mention Ki Sung-yong’s name, but from the contents, it was possible to infer that player B was Ki Sung-yong.
In March of that year, Ki Sung-yong sued Mr. A and others for defamation and filed a lawsuit for damages of 500 million won.
In March of last year, the first trial of the damages lawsuit filed by Ki Sung-yong was held at the Seoul Central District Court, but the trial was delayed until the outcome of the criminal case in which Ki Sung-yong sued Mr. A and others came out.
With this decision not to send the defamation, it is expected that the case will be tried again.
