Ki Sung-yong, police investigation report “The father sent only money because he built a soccer center.”

[스포츠서울 이게은기자] Soccer player Ki Sung-yong (32, FC Seoul), who is accused of violating the Farmland Law, was investigated by the police.

The Gwangju Police Agency’s anti-corruption economic crime investigation unit summoned Ki Sung-yong yesterday (2nd) from 2pm to 5pm. In this investigation, Ki Sung-yong denied allegations of speculation and stated that “My father sent me because he said he needed money to build a soccer center.”

Earlier, Ki Sung-yong and his father Ki Young-ok (former Gwangju FC head) were charged with violating the Farmland Act and the National Land Planning and Use Act last month. It is accused of falsely writing an agricultural management plan when he purchased 10 lots of land, including paddy fields in Geumho-dong, Seo-gu, Gwangju, for 5.8 billion won between 2015 and 2016. In addition, some of the land was rented as a garage, and there were also charges of illegally altering the traits, and some of the purchased land was incorporated into the private park special project, leading to speculation.

In response, Ki Sung-yong said, “When my father suggested in 2016 to do a soccer center to cultivate soccer dream trees, I thought it was a good thing, so I agreed and gave everything to my father in Korea. I never thought that buying the land would be a problem at all, and farmland. I didn’t even know if there was a problem or if farmland was a problem.” “It is unfair to say that the purchased site was bought for speculation for the purpose of building a soccer center.”
