SOUTH KOREA: Jinro files suit against PR executives
Leading South Korean spirits group Jinro has filed a lawsuit against two employees of a public relations company which had been working for its competitor Doosan Liquor BG, alleging unfair business obstruction and defamation.
Jinro filed the suit yesterday (25 September) with the Seoul District Prosecutors' Office against the two individuals. Jinro is accusing the two people of spreading false rumours at a recent promotional event organised by Doosan.
Jinro told reporters that it had submitted tape recordings and photos to the prosecution to support its accusations. "If Doosan is found to be involved in the case after the investigation, we plan to take legal actions against Doosan as well," a Jinro spokesperson said.
Doosan said that it plans to file a defamation suit against Jinro in response.
