Jeon Cheong-jo, who said, “I plan to marry Nam Hyun-hee,” also seems to have been involved in running the academy.
Even though circumstances of sexual violence by a leader were revealed at an academy run by former national fencing team member Nam Hyun-hee, it was reported that it was not reported to the Sports Ethics Center or investigative agency in a timely manner.
According to reports from Yonhap News on the 26th, the police received a complaint from the victim in July, alleging that leader A, who worked at the Nam Hyunhee International Fencing Academy in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, had committed sexual violence, including sexual harassment, against two minor students for several months.
Is said to have made an extreme choice when allegations of sexual violence became public in the hospital in early July, a few days after the complaint was filed.
About three months later, on the 10th, a report with the same content was received by the Sports Ethics Center.
The center is conducting an investigation after receiving an additional report that Nam Hyun-hee, the head of a private academy, was aware of the problem but did not take sufficient action.
According to the center, it appears that Nam Hyun-hee did not report the sexual violence incident at the hospital to the relevant authorities in time.
According to Article 18-4 (2) of the National Sports Promotion Act,
coaches, athletes, and other ‘athlete management personnel’ specified by
Ordinance of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism must
immediately notify the Sports Ethics Center or an investigative agency if
they are aware of any suspected violations of human rights or corruption in the sports field.
According to the Ordinance of the Ministry of Culture, Sports and
Tourism, reporting obligations are imposed not only on leaders of sports
organizations under the Korea Sports Council but also on operators of private academies.
The center’s position is that it has not received any separate
communication about the issue of sexual violence from Nam Hyun-hee or the Fencing Academy.
Was at the center of controversy when she revealed in a recent interview
with the monthly magazine Women’s Chosun that she was about to marry her ‘boyfriend‘ Jeon Cheong-jo.
Who also participated in the interview, was introduced as a third-
generation chaebol, a horseback riding athlete who retired due to an injury, and a young businessman.
However, soon after the interview was made public, suspicions arose
against Mr. Jeon, including false gender, a criminal record for fraud, and
impersonation of a third-generation chaebol.
In fact, it was confirmed through a court ruling that Jeon, a ‘woman’ in the
past, committed habitual fraud by pretending to be a man or pretending to
be the CEO of a corporation out of wedlock.
When Nam Hyun-hee found out about his history and announced their
breakup, Mr. Jeon went to Nam Hyun-hee’s mother’s house and was
arrested by the police on charges of stalking on the 26th. He was released after investigation.
It is understood that Mr. Jeon was also significantly involved in the operation of the fencing academy.
In an interview with Women’s Chosun, Jeon also revealed, ‘I worked with
(Nam Hyun-hee) at the fencing academy, so I saw her often (recently).’
In relation to this, Nam Hyun-hee explained Mr. Jeon’s specific work at the
fencing academy, saying, “While I teach people who want to learn fencing
for their own reasons, Mr. Cheongjo does a business that deals with the
psychological education children need through arts and physical education.” 스포츠토토맨
