Om May 9 night, Judge Song Kyung Ho and Myung Jae Kwon issued a pretrial detention arrest warrants for FTISLAND Member Choi Jong Hoon and fellow chatroom member Kwon (who is a brother of a popular girl group member). They’re suspected of violating the Act of the Punishment, etc. of Sexual Crimes (aggravated rape).
Note: Aggravated rape is a term that’s used to refer to rape that involves two or more perpetrators.
The judges explain the approval; they fear there would be destruction of evidence and thus approved the arrest warrant.
This based on the suspicions raised after they were accused of sexually assaulting a woman with peers (including Jung Joon Young) back in 2016 which relates to hidden footage taken back in a hotel in 2016.
It was reported that Choi Jong Hoon denied the suspicions when questioned by police.
