[Asia News Communication = Reporter Reakkana] The Ground Operations Command’s general military court held Seungri’s first hearing on September 16 (Wednesday). Seungri’s side stated, “We deny all charges except his violation of the Foreign Exchange Transactions Act.”

Seungri has been indicted on eight charges including purchase of prostitution services, prostitution mediation, embezzlement, violation of the Act on the Aggravated Punishment, etc. of Specific Economic Crimes (an additional charge for embezzlement of a sum exceeding a certain number), violation of the Food Sanitation Act, habitual gambling, violation of the Foreign Exchange Transactions Act, and violation of the Act on Special Cases Concerning the Punishment, etc. of Sexual Crimes. Seungri’s case was transferred to the military courts after his enlistment in March.

Seungri is suspected to have arranged prostitution services for foreign investors to procure investments for his businesses between December 2015 and January 2016. Around the same time, he also allegedly purchased prostitution services himself. For  suspicions that he filmed and spread illegal footage, Seungri’s legal representative said, “He did not take the photos himself. He only shared photos that he received from an adult entertainment establishment in a group chat with his friends.”(Soompi)
