KFA cannot disclose the list of 100 ‘pardons’… “Possibility of defamation”

The Korea Football Association (KFA) announced on the 28th that it “held a board meeting in the conference room of the Seoul World Cup Stadium and decided to amnesty 100 soccer players.” 

Those subject to pardon include former and current players, coaches, referees, and executives of organizations who were being disciplined for misconduct. Among the subjects, 48 ​​people who were expelled in 2011 for match fixing in professional football were included, causing controversy. There was no amnesty background for the public to nod. 

Also, the KFA did not disclose the recipients of the amnesty. Only a few names were listed, but the list was not disclosed. On the 29th, KFA said through its official channel, “Disclosure of the list of those subject to pardon is announcing the fact of disciplinary charges, which may violate the Personal Information Protection Act and cause defamation.” . 

The timing of the announcement of the results of the amnesty also caused a stir. The KFA announced the amnesty one hour before the kickoff of the friendly match between the Korean national soccer team and Uruguay. It was pointed out that most of the reporters and fans were trying to reduce the controversy by exploiting the gap where the attention was focused on this game.  안전놀이터

KFA said, “KFA should conduct the board of directors on a date when as many directors as possible can gather in order to achieve board membership. In the meantime, when an A-match is held in Seoul and the metropolitan area every year, the board of directors has held several times at the stadium. The press release was distributed right after the board of directors in order to deliver the facts as quickly as possible when the board of directors’ decision had already been made.”
