The six Korean nationals that were earlier this week detained and were awaiting possible deportation have all been released.

Jin Sook Yoon, Beomseop Shin, Chul Na, Jung Young Kim, Sung Jin Lee and Byeongjoon members of the Grace Road Business group are now back in Navua.

A notice of discontinuance was today filed at the Lautoka high court on an application to stop the deportation.

Six men that were detained earlier this week facing deportation have finally been released. The Korean nationals are in the country as members of the Grace Road Group. According to the Attorney General’s chambers, there were no orders for deportation.

Three of the six Korean nationals were taken into custody and detained on Tuesday evening.

However the same process was repeated the other three from the group were detained the following day.

The six men were subsequently released last night following mutual discussions and cooperation between their lawyers and the Attorney General’s chambers.

Gordon adds their release does not mean the investigation by police can’t continue against them.

The Grace Road group is under investigation by the Fiji Police and their South Korean counterparts, however that was not discussed in any of the court proceedings.
