G-Dragon confidently and voluntarily cooperates with drug investigations, while the police fail to get a search warrant
According to legal circles on October 31st, the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency’s Narcotic Investigation Division applied to the prosecution for a search warrant to obtain G-Dragon (Kwon Ji-yong)’s communication details for the investigation into his drug charges, but the court rejected it due to a “lack of evidence to prove the crime”.
The police reportedly plan to re-apply for a search warrant for communication details after a supplementary investigation. They want to obtain G-Dragon’s call records to confirm his specific relationship with the doctor known to have supplied drugs to employees at an entertainment establishment in Gangnam, Seoul for free.
In the meantime, the male singer announced his intention to voluntarily attend the police and insisted that he did not take drugs.
On the 31st, G-Dragon’s legal representative Kim Soo-hyun said, “Kwon Ji-yong will actively cooperate with the investigation at the Incheon Metropolitan Police Agency on November 6th”, adding “We hope the media will have a responsible attitude when reporting the case to prevent irreversible damage to Kwon Ji-yong, a representative K-pop artist. We will also take strict responses to speculative postings, the spread of false information, and defamation”.
According to legal circles, G-Dragon can only prove his innocence if his hair test doesn’t detect any drugs.
Therefore, attention is focused on whether G-Dragon’s counterattack to recover his honor in the police investigation will work.
