South Korea promises “strongest action” against Boccia coach accused of abuse

South Korea’s Chef de Mission at the London 2012 Paralympics has promised that allegations of abuse made by the country’s boccia captain against a coach will be fully investigated after a disciplinary committee was set-up following further claims of violence against members of the team.

It has been revealed that 31-year-old Ji Kwang-min (pictured) was the South Korean who had made an official complaint against Kim Jin-han, who he alleged abused him during London 2012, including hitting him on the head with a light stand.

The family of Ji, who has cerebral palsy, also claimed that 42-year-old Kim had beaten him regularly since 2010 and had stolen up 1 million won (£550/$900/€700) at a time from him on several occasions.
