Police and Prosecutor's Office Continues Reciprocal Accusations of No Further Investigation of B.I in 2016 + New Reports

USER CONTENT

Earlier, both the Police and the Prosecutor's Office made statements against B.I's allegations that the investigation into the attempted to buy drug in 2016 from "A" (Han Seo Hee) was inadequate. On June 19 moe statements came from both sides about possible investigation negligence. 

A new report from CBS No Cut News states that Lieutenant “B,” the police officer in charge of the 2016 drug case involving B.I and “A” (later publicly revealed to be Han Seo Hee) had received a special promotion for how he handled the case.

According to several sources, Lieutenant “B” from the Yongin Dongbu Police Station was promoted one grade in rank around the end of 2016. The special promotion was a result of Lieutenant “B’s” eradication of drug-related crimes including Han Seo Hee’s case. A police source shared, “The special promotion was based on how he handled Han Seo Hee’s case.”

This indicates that the police believed the investigation on Han Seo Hee was carried out well, which is contrary to the recent suspicions of insufficient investigation.

In a call with CBS No Cut News, the head of Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Agency’s narcotics investigation team explained, “Lieutenant ‘B’ arrested 53 drug offenders from May through October 2016, and Han Seo Hee is only one of them. The reason he got promoted is not due to [Han Seo Hee] and B.I’s case.”

Han Seo Hee was arrested and questioned on August 22, 2016. Lieutenant “B” carried out the first and second questioning sessions on the same day and requested a pretrial detention warrant for Han Seo Hee. However, the request was denied by the prosecution, and Han Seo Hee was sent back home. Lieutenant “B” states that Han Seo Hee mentioned B.I’s name right before the pretrial detention warrant was denied and had to be sent home before any more information could be obtained. She attended her third questioning with a lawyer and changed her testimony.

The police claim they were planning to begin investigating B.I but were instructed by the Suwon District Prosecutor’s Office to forward the case to them. 

As a result, the police forwarded an investigative report mentioning drug-related suspicions on B.I and did not carry out further investigations. Prosecutors deny having instructed the police to forward the case and state that the investigative report they received suggested that a separate internal investigation was being carried out by the police.


Gyeonggi Southern Provincial Police Agency has formed a special task force to look into any flaws in the past investigations. It was reported that they are also investigating how the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s narcotics investigation team carried out their investigation on the 2017 case involving BIGBANG’s T.O.P and Han Seo Hee. At the time, Han Seo was reportedly also asked about B.I, but no further investigations took place after the questioning.

A police source shared, “We will thoroughly look into various possibilities including the [police’s] dereliction of duties.”

So the police claims that they received the request to forward the case further to the prosecution, while prosecution denies doing that and claims that the police suggested they'll conduct a proper investigation themselves. The fact that these two government bodies cannot seem to get their stories straight is very note-worthy. It seems to me like both are quite terrified of what further things could be uncovered, and are rushing to blame the other. At the very least, the suggestion that the police officer in charge of the drug investigation got promoted thanks to how he handled the investigation into Seohee specifically is not looking good for not just him, but many other people too. I think heads might actually roll for this one, unless they decide to come together and blame it all on some mess up with the paperwork and call it a day.

OP, to be neutral in presenting the news, you can't bold the head of agency's justification for the promotion and not also highlight other police sources that say the exact opposite:


A police source shared, “The special promotion was based on how he handled Han Seo Hee’s case.
This indicates that the police believed the investigation on Han Seo Hee was carried out well
, which is contrary to the recent suspicions of insufficient investigation.


You gotta work harder to be neutral given your nick man...
