A chairman of a medical foundation in Busan, Korea, has been sentenced to serve time for hiring gang members to assault high school students.
The chairman heard concerns from one of his employees, a mother, who was upset that her son was being bullied at school. The chairman decided to step in and sent 5 of his male employees along with 2 gang members to the school and ordered them to teach the bullies a lesson.
Apparently, he announced during a company lunch, "Her son is getting picked on at his school. I am sending people to beat up those bullies and to also let the teachers know. Make sure the whole school turns upside down."
After the company lunch, the 7 men entered the school, found the 4 bullies in the high school, punched them in their faces, and dragged them to the school gate.
After lining the students up, the men threatened them, saying, "We can kill you without anyone knowing."
When 2 teachers rushed to the rescue and begged, "Please return the kids and let's talk in the office," the men assaulted the teachers as well, injuring one of them.
The chairman is said to have a history of ordering his employees to assault his enemies including one such case back in 2010. The police investigation revealed that the chairman also hired a gang member as his secretary then directed him to assault others.
A judge sentenced the chairman to 2 years in prison, but the case is being appealed in the higher court, with the chairman obtaining a new lawyer who is known to handle many high-profile cases.
