“There were about four police cars, and the strong men… It was so noisy that I wondered if there was some kind of gang fight.”

These were African Liberia nationals who traveled to Busan to attend an international event organized by the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries.

Two Liberian foreigners are accused of bringing two female students they met at a nearby subway station to the hotel and raping them.

These men, in their 50s and 30s, respectively, claimed immunity.

He stated that he had a diplomatic passport after being dispatched from Liberia to the UK, and that he had come to Korea to attend the event.

However, since he was not granted diplomatic status by Korea, the immunity privilege was not recognized, and he was immediately sent to a detention facility.

The police plan to apply for an arrest warrant as soon as the investigation into the circumstances of their crime is completed.
