12 gangsters involved in a ‘group brawl’ while standing in Busan… indicted after a full reinvestigation

Two years ago, members of Busan’s two major violent gangs who engaged in a mass brawl in Busan’s downtown area were handed over to trial.

On the 19th, the Busan District Prosecutors’ Office’s Violent Crime Investigation Department (Chief먹튀검증 Prosecutor Park Seong-min) arrested and indicted five members of the Chilseong faction and the New 20th Century faction on charges of violating the Punishment for Violence Act (formation and activities of an organization, etc.), special assault, and special injury, and indicted seven without detention. He said he did. Prosecutors are tracking one gang member who fled after the incident.

According to the prosecution, they are suspected of engaging in a group fight in the middle of Seomyeon, Busan’s busiest district, in the early morning of October 17, 2021.

The Chilseong faction and the New 20th Century faction are indigenous violent organizations based in Busan that have been active for over 30 years. The size is about 200 people and 100 people each . The two organizations are known to have a deep relationship. Starting with the incident in July 1993 when an executive of the Chilseong faction murdered an executive of the New 20th Century faction, there were a total of five retaliatory crimes until 2020. The first incident became the subject of the movie Friends.

Initially, the police divided the cases into suspects and forwarded them to each suspect, but the prosecution decided that it was a case of ‘serious organized violence’ and launched a full-scale investigation. The prosecution re-examined about 20 people involved and secured interview transcripts. Through this, it was confirmed that there were organized and group criminal group activities, such as group members randomly beating members of the other group as a group.

The prosecution charged them with criminal group activity under the Punishment of Violence Act. The crime of criminal group activity is usually a crime applied to organized crime. A prosecution official said, “We will investigate organized crime that threatens the safety and daily life of citizens until the end and deal with it strictly, including bringing to light the forces behind it and dismantling the violent organization.”
