Korean FM Requests Cooperation Into US Forces Molestation Case


South Korea’s foreign ministry said Monday it has requested the United States Embassy in Seoul and U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) to cooperate with a local police investigation into an alleged sexual molestation case involving three U.S. soldiers.

On Saturday, the police in Yongin, south of Seoul, arrested three U.S. servicemen from the Army’s 210th Field Artillery Brigade on suspicion of being involved in a sexual harassment incident that happened at a water theme park.

The U.S. soldiers are suspected of sexually molesting a female staff member and beating other male employees while being under the influence of alcohol.

Col. Michael J. Lawson, commander of the brigade, said in a statement that he will ensure full cooperation with Korean police and that appropriate actions will follow.
