2 Given Suspended Sentence in Choi Jin-sil Suicide

2009/06/17 | 203 views | Permalink | Source

The Seoul Central District Court on Tuesday handed suspended sentences to a present and a former employees at a securities firm for spreading groundless and malicious rumors believed to have led to the suicide of the actress Choi Jin-sil.

The two were given a 10-month jail sentence suspended for two years and 120 hours of community service for claiming on the Internet that Choi had some part in the suicide of actor Ahn Jae-hwan, who apparently killed himself under pressure of huge debts, since she was one of his creditors.

The court dismissed the defendants' argument that they were unaware that the rumor was groundless and had no malicious intent.

Choi committed suicide at her home on Oct. 2, 2008, right after she brought a complaint against the two.
