At the moment, HYBE issued an official assertion negative all allegations and a press release that Kim Garam had been a sufferer of bullying. In addition they introduced their plans to take authorized motion in opposition to these accused of Kim Garam.
Earlier this week, controversy over the costs escalated when a photograph exhibiting a document an official document of the faculty violence committee assembly started to unfold on-line. Kim Garam is called in the doc as the wrongdoer in the incident.
Could 19 The authorized consultant of the alleged sufferer (‘Y’) issued an in depth assertion confirming that the doc distributed was real and that Kim Garam had been discovered responsible of faculty violence in 2018.
The regulation agency additionally stated that whereas Y was not one of the individuals who initially posted Kim Garam’s photographs on-line in April, Kim Garam’s mates and strangers have been making enjoyable of her on-line since HYBE appeared. Kim Garam was in reality a sufferer of harassment.
