The Sports Ethics Center reviewed the death of a Gimpo FC youth team player, which was filed in May 2022, and decided to ‘request disciplinary action’ regarding leaders such as coaches and some fellow players.
On the 6th, the Center for Sports Ethics revealed the reason for requesting disciplinary action, saying, “We recognized the seriousness of the ‘death case of a youth player in event A’ reported to the Center for Sports Ethics in May 2022.”
Victim A of the incident was found dead in front of the Gimpo FC youth team dormitory building in Masan-dong, Gimpo-si last April. As a result of surveillance camera TV video analysis, Group A made an extreme choice by jumping from the 4th floor of the dormitory where he lived at 2 am on the same day.
Group A left a will of 5 sheets of A4 paper on SNS. In the suicide note, there were traces of verbal abuse and bullying disclosed by the Sports Ethics Center. In November of last year, when the police and the Center for Sports Ethics were investigating the case, Gimpo FC caused controversy by renewing contracts with coaches identified by Group A as perpetrators.
The Sports Ethics Center said, “At dawn on the day of death, the victim listed the names of a total of 10 people, including 2 youth team coaches and 6 players, and 2 middle school soccer team players, through a mobile phone messenger, and said, ‘I will curse these players even after they die’. He explained that he left a message saying, “I feel the urge to commit suicide or murder every time I face discrimination and verbal violence.”
“The committee made a ‘request for disciplinary action’ by acknowledging the violation of basic rights such as the freedom of the body and the freedom of privacy and verbal abuse,” he said. In order to prevent a recurrence, we asked relevant organizations to recommend system improvement and training to prevent human rights violations such as bullying,” he added. 메이저놀이터
In addition, along with the request for disciplinary action by the accused, the committee requested related organizations to improve the system and provide education to prevent human rights violations such as bullying in order to prevent excessive infringement of basic rights and recurrence of minor players while living in the training camp.
Jeong So-yeon, chairman of the Sports Human Rights Subcommittee of the Deliberation Committee, said, “The discipline of underage players must be done in an educational way, and actions such as confiscating cell phones, having them shave their heads, or swearing are clear violations of human rights.” It should not be tolerated just because it is customary,” he explained the background of the decision.
