Seungri & Yoo In Suk reported to be facing new charges involving affiliation with gang violence

AKP STAFF

On January 14, former Big Bang member Seungri attended his 7th court hearing session in the ongoing trial involving his numerous criminal charges. 

Prior to beginning the 7th court hearing session, the Yongin Ground Operations Military Court revealed on this day that Seungri and his former business partner Yoo In Suk are now facing newly added charges in the form of eliciting miscellaneous violence.

According to the prosecution's findings, back on December 30, 2015, Seungri picked a fight against another customer at a drinking establishment, after the customer intruded on a private room where Seungri was drinking. During this process, even more customers also became involved, and Seungri notified Yoo In Suk of the escalating events in a Kakao chat room. Afterward, prosecutors detected that Yoo In Suk called up members of a gang and arrived on the scene, ganging up against the customers, threatening them, and attempting to take their mobile phones. 

The prosecution stated, "The defendant Lee Seung Hyun (Seungri) colluded with Yoo In Suk and threatened the victims, partaking in an overt display of force. As a result, he must be indicted as a culprit in eliciting violence."

Seungri's side has decided to deny the accusations and will likely prepare to refute the prosecution's evidence during the next hearing. With this newly added charge, Seungri now currently faces a total of 8 criminal charges on trial.

This is very common in prosecution. The lawyers stack charges because they need at least one thing to stick. They do this when they know they can't win with what they have. They do it all the time, in the states they especially do this with minorities. So I'm not surprised. And not not bc I think SR did it which I don't. I'm just not surprised that after 2 years of unsuccessful investigations, zero proof and a very embarrassingly weak case, they're resulting to this

Soo... people invaded his *private* drinking room, he took exception to it (as *anyone* would) and an altercation ensued (which they twisted to Seungri "picking a fight"). Telling a friend you are having a problem and him coming to help you out doesn't make them a "gang". He's a big star and they often have people keep people away from them and handle the public. I'd have to see more than this article to call him guilty. (frankly I take exception to them acting like he started it when it was his private room they came into - so it calls the rest into suspect).

How about they get the persons that invaded his personal space on invasion of privacy, etc. (stalking if they knew it was Seungri's room and entered with that purpose).
