Yang Hyun Suk Under Suspicion of Receiving Preferential Treatment During Investigation
Police reportedly visited YG's office directly to investigate Yang Hyun Suk.
According to a report by Channel A on the 15th, two police officers from the Seoul Mapo-gu office visited Yang Hyun Suk in 2016 at the YG's main building on the 6th floor and went back after investigating him for about an hour. Police were investigating building violations reported on the 6-story building owned by the former YG Entertainment producer.
Two months later, the police forwarded the case to prosecution and Yang Hyun Suk was fined 3 million won.
A police official revealed, "Visit investigations are normally conducted only if the person being investigated is elderly or a patient that is not able to move around well. But police made accommodations for Yang Hyun Suk because of his busy schedule."
In the meantime, police booked Seungri and Yang Hyun Suk on the 14th after records obtained through the FBI suggested that Yang Hyun Suk entered into illegal foreign exchange transactions and that Seungri and Yang Hyun Suk engaged in illegal gambling overseas.
Many are watching the ongoing investigations closely to see how the police will investigate Yang Hyun Suk who is currently under investigation for alleged prostitution activities as well as illegal gambling overseas.
