Seoul Police involved in 'Burning Sun' scandal are being accused of tampering with CCTV evidence



In the wake of the 'Burning Sun' controversy, the police that responded to the assault at the club are being accused of tampering with CCTV footage. 

MBC 'News Desk' previously reported that Mr. Kim was assaulted not only by the club employees but also the police officers who responded to the assault. 

In the CCTV footage shared originally, the club director, Mr. Jang pushed Mr. Kim's face to the ground and 20 minutes later Mr. Kim was also beaten by the Police at the police station.  As a result, Mr. Kim had blood on his nose and lips.  From the CCTV video that was shared, you could see the Police cleaning up Mr. Kim's bloodstains on the floor with a mop. 

 

Mr. Jang, the club director at Burning Sun when talking to reporters, said, "I was surprised to see that Mr. Kim was bleeding even though he had no injuries on his face." The police went on to explain that "Mr. Kim had fallen alone on the door entrance, hitting his head and thus suffering from a nose-bleed."

Mr. Kim requested the black-box camera from the police car but the police refused to share it citing privacy reasons and eventually Mr. Kim applied for an attorney to subpoena the evidence.  They received the video under the court's judgment but the video that the police shared was not the original. In fact, the CCTV footage shared showed only 2 people instead of the 4 that had responded to the assault that night. 

Due to this, Mr. Kim is suing the Gangnam police station in Seoul for allegedly tampering with CCTV evidence.  Burning Sun officials responded via SNS saying, "We will do all we can to cooperate in the investigation process.  The person responsible already asked to take responsibility for it and proceeded with disciplinary action and resignation."


Stay tuned for more details.

I think at this point Seungri really REALLY needs to make a statement what the club is to him, and provide evidence that can't be easily tampered. This whole thing is turning into a mess no matter what news site you look at.

I agree. Even if he has something or not to do w all of this. At least so we know how to react to all of this mess. instead of reading. There will be true fans that will be by his side no matter what, as long as there's no death involved or a huge crime.

If he didn't talk at the beginning of this, doing so now will be worst. Not to mention the fact of his resignation to his position in the Club was a clear attempt to 'dodge the bullet'... This is already a mess and nothing that anybody can do or say will put the things in its right place again, this is already going downhill 'without brakes' and the result it's gonna be a crash no matter what, the only thing that we have to do is wait to see who will be 'the victim'.

How come this report doesn't include the black-box contained that obviously shows the police brutally assault the victim? Other report i.e Koreaboo reported it more detailed with video footage. Even the contain of the petition by victim to the blue house was enclosed with very detailed + cctv + black-box vid proof.
