‘Oh Jae-won’ is a Name that Doosan Wants to Erase

They Even Held a Grand Retirement Ceremony... ‘Oh Jae-won’ is a Name that Doosan Wants to Erase

Eight Doosan juniors who received prescriptions from Jaewon Oh's representative should be investigated by judicial authorities.

During his active career, Oh Jae-won (39) was criticized as a 'discourteous player' by fans of nine professional baseball teams.

However, some Doosan Bears fans praised Oh Jae-won, calling him a ‘player full of fighting spirit.’

Now Doosan fans are also ignoring Oh Jae-won.

Oh Jae-won threatened Doosan juniors and forced them into the 'illegal act' of prescribing 'Stilnox tablets' (a sleep inducing agent containing zolpidem) on their behalf. 카지노사이트

Because of Oh Jae-won, Doosan juniors are investigated by ‘judicial agencies.’

According to the KBO Secretariat on the 22nd, the Doosan Club, where Oh Jae-won played, reported to the KBO Clean Baseball Center two weeks ago that eight of its players were prescribed sleeping pills on their behalf and gave them to Oh Jae-won.

Doosan Club conducted its own investigation at the end of March when the Oh Jae-won issue arose and found out the relevant facts, and the players in question announced that they are currently faithfully participating in the police investigation.

Given the circumstances, it appears that most of Doosan's juniors were prescribed Stilnox tablets on behalf of Oh Jae-won through threats and coercion.

However, in the 'area of ​​the law', Doosan juniors are not viewed only as 'victims'.

A legal expert said in a phone call with Yonhap News, "Stilnox tablets contain zolpidem.

Zolpidem is classified as a psychotropic drug under the Narcotic Drugs Control Act.

“Substitute prescriptions are clearly illegal,” he said.

“The circumstances of the eight people who received surrogate prescriptions will all be different, and the prosecution is expected to impose different sentences, ranging from suspended indictment to fines.

“We need to quickly collect evidence of threats made with a lawyer and clearly prove that there was no compensation,” he said.

Currently, Oh Jae-won is being investigated as a ‘drug offender’.

On the 17th, the Seoul Central District Prosecutor's Office's Violent Crime Investigation Department arrested and indicted Oh Jae-won on charges of violating the Act on the Management of Narcotic Drugs (Hyangjeong), violating the Act on the Aggravated Punishment of Specific Crimes (threats of retaliation, etc.), violating the Resident Registration Act, and damaging special property.

According to the prosecution, Oh Jae-won is accused of administering Philopon a total of 11 times from November 2022 to November of last year, and storing approximately 0.4g of Philopon in a fire hydrant in the hallway of an acquaintance's apartment in April 2023.

In addition, Oh Jae-won was also charged with receiving 2,242 tablets of Stillnox, a psychotropic drug, from nine acquaintances on a total of 89 occasions from January of last year to March of this year, and purchasing 20 tablets of Stillnox by stealing the name of an acquaintance.

Oh Jae-won is also accused of threatening an acquaintance by breaking his cell phone with a hammer and grabbing him by the collar when the acquaintance tried to report his drug use to the police.

Although he is a retired baseball player, Oh Jae-won inflicted fatal wounds on his former club, Doosan.

Active players who prescribed prescriptions for Oh Jae-won are at risk of punishment.

Oh Jae-won, who joined Doosan in 2007, played for only one team for 16 seasons until this year, appearing in 1,570 first-team games and posting a batting average of 0.267, 64 home runs, 521 RBIs, 678 runs, and 289 stolen bases.

Jaewon Oh played as a key infielder while Doosan advanced to the Korean Series for seven consecutive seasons from 2015 to 2021 and won three times (2015, 2016, 2019).

In 2015 and 2019, he wore the ‘championship armband’ and lifted the championship trophy.

Although he was not a very outstanding player on record, the Doosan club held a grand retirement ceremony for ‘one-club man’ Oh Jae-won on October 8, 2022.

Former and current Doosan players who had a relationship with Jaewon Oh in the first team looked back at the retirement ceremony and said, "Senior Jaewon Oh was a good captain."

However, before his retirement, Oh Jae-won forced his juniors to take prescriptions on his behalf.

This is where the Doosan team was even more shocked.

One legal expert said, "Oh Jae-won's side will try to use the 'good expressions' from the Doosan team in his court statement to his advantage, but it will not affect the actual outcome of the trial."
