Experts including Critics and Lawyers talk about Seungri's case

About the media and how many reports coming that contradict themselves and some proven wrong an Excerpts from “The Characteristics of the Korean Prosecution System and the Prosecutor’s Direct Investigation” by Jung-Soo Lee” wrote, “From the viewpoint of mass media, the people have a right to know and thus the mass media, emphasizing freedom of press, try to report the facts. The problem is that media agencies compete with each other to report unproven or unconfirmed information and rumors. Such report themselves may interrupt the investigation and violate civil rights. Thus prosecutors ask for the correction of the news based on unproven information by the responsible media agency and prohibit the reporters from entering the Public Prosecute’s Office. Sometimes, the press club itself prohibits the reporters responsible for the news from gaining access to the press club room, or office.”

Jung-Soo Lee served as a Deputy Chief of Suwon District, Public Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Korea
