Myung Whun Chung: I am innocent, ok?

Norman Lebrecht - Slipped discThe conductor has been cleared of all wrongdoing by a police investigation in his home country, South Korea, having been wildly accused of expenses fraud and defamation by a sacked orchestra manager. He leaves the country completely innocent, despite a campaign by motivated print and broadcast media. This morning he issued the following statement: ‘I am happy that after a thorough investigation all the accusations against myself and the SPO have proven to be groundless. ‘It is a pity that so much damage has been done to myself and the SPO over the last year and a half. ‘What I have learned from this experience is how easy, specially in our country, it is to tear down and destroy something that has been built with such hard work. ‘I hope that in the future I can be of help to other people who have suffered through such hardship caused by completely fabricated accusations. ‘I have worked tirelessly and honestly on behalf of SPO over 10 years. I am just sad for all the damage that has been done to the SPO and I hope you will all join me in supporting them in the future. Myung Whun Chung
