Seungri Reportedly Refusing To Hand Over His Phone For Investigation

He’s going back on his words.

BIGBANG‘s Seungri is currently under investigation for multiple crimes, including police corruption, bribery, offering prostitutes as entertainment for foreign investors, and more.

As the investigative team is currently compiling evidence to figure out the truth, they requested Seungri and Jung Joon Young to hand in their phones. Their phones were requested in connection to the multiple chatrooms that discussed prostitutes, bribery, illegal gambling and more.

Jung Joon Young reportedly handed his phone over, while claiming that he had recently “switched phones two weeks ago.” But Seungri refused to hand his phone over for investigation.

Netizens rose up in anger as they claim he is already going back on his words to fully cooperate and do all that he can to be truthful in his investigations.

Seungri had vowed multiple times that he would do all that he can to ensure a truthful and prompt investigation.

“I once again bow my head in apology to everyone who were hurt or were victims to this scandal. I will answer truthfully and fully cooperate with the investigation.”
