Nafla, the rapper sentenced to prison for his involvement in evading military service, has been released on bail during the appeal process, as confirmed by the Seoul Southern District Court's Criminal Appeal Division 2-3 on February 13 KST. The court's decision came with conditions, including a 10 million won deposit, residence restrictions, evidence destruction, and a pledge to remain within the country's borders.
Nafla's legal team argued for his release, citing nearly a year of incarceration since his arrest, during which he served most of his sentence. The defense emphasized the challenges faced by Nafla in receiving adequate treatment during his prolonged detention.
According to the prosecution, Nafla was employed as a social worker at the Seocho-gu office in February 2021 and is accused of improperly fulfilling his military service obligations by feigning attendance while failing to report for duty. Additionally, he is charged with attempting to evade military service by providing false information to avoid conscription.
Nafla was apprehended in February of the previous year and received a one-year prison sentence in August for his actions.
Individuals implicated in manipulating Nafla's attendance, including Seocho-gu office official Mr. Yeom and Military Manpower Administration official Mr. Kang, were each sentenced to one year in prison and two years of probation.
