KOVO suspended for 5 years for early ‘military service irregularities’

Volleyball player Cho Jae-sung, who received a suspended prison sentence for military service irregularities, has received a five-year ban from the Korea Volleyball Organization (KOVO).

The KOVO held a punishment committee for Cho’s violation of the Military Service Act at the federation’s conference room in Sangam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul on the 15th. In accordance with Article 10 (Reasons for Discipline) of the Federation’s Punishment Regulations, the committee decided to impose a five-year suspension.

The punishment is effective immediately, and Cho is banned until June 14, 2028.메이저놀이터

Cho was classified as Class 1 active duty at his first physical examination in October 2014, but in 2018, he was classified as Class 3 active duty, citing a skin condition (psoriasis), which delayed his enlistment.

Then, in December 2020, he paid 50 million won to a military service broker, Mr. Kumo, to consult on how to escape military service and was diagnosed with a fake case of epilepsy, which led to a Class 4 supplemental service.

When the military service fraud case broke out in December last year, Cho Jae-sung directly admitted his involvement and apologized. He was subsequently indicted and sentenced to one year in prison and two years of probation by the court last month.

Meanwhile, KOVO called on Cho’s former team, OK Financial Group, to be more thorough in its management of the team and the club.
