South Korean World Cup Player Arrested in China

Son Jun-Ho, a player for the South Korean national football team who played in three of the four World Cup matches last year has been arrested in northeastern China. This news was confirmed by the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The 31-year-old is suspected of accepting bribes from “non-government employees” according to a foreign ministry spokesman. He will play from 2021 in Shandong Taishan in the Chinese top league.

This arrest has raised many questions about the legitimacy of the Chinese legal system and whether or not Son Jun-Ho was given a fair trial. It also raises questions about the potential involvement of South Korea in this case.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has yet to comment on the case and it is unclear what will happen next for Son Jun-Ho.
