The Korea Volleyball Federation (KOVO) held a reward and punishment committee on the 9th and decided to take “warning measures” against Nia Reed’s illegal possession of goods.
Nia Li returned home after being investigated by Incheon Customs on September 27 last year for possession of illegal goods. At that time, Nia Reed’s possession was a food containing hemp ingredients named “CBD Jelly” and was known to be legally sold in the U.S., the country where players were from.
Since then, the first urine test conducted at the Incheon Immigration Office has tested negative, and the official investigation by the National Forensic Service has also received a final negative notice.
However, in January, the prosecution decided not to indict the case, and on the 6th of this month, the immigration criminal review of the Foreign Office imposed a one-year entry restriction within April 5 and the date of departure.
Based on the results of the immigration criminal review, the federation held a reward and punishment committee to give clubs and players a chance to explain.
Nia Reed sincerely apologized for the incident, reflecting on the fact that she did not know that Korean and U.S. laws were different, deeply regretted, and explained that she wanted to play volleyball again in Korea in the future.
The reward and punishment committee said, “We considered the fact that the item was widely legal in the U.S., that it was brought in due to ignorance due to not receiving information on domestic law from agents, that the player did not take it in Korea, that the prosecution decided not to indict for simple possession, and that the player is deeply remorseful.”
“First of all, I want to take full responsibility for my actions, regret deeply, and it has been a painful lesson to learn as I move forward in my life,” Nia Reed said through his team. “I was able to develop as a human being not only as an athlete but also through opportunities here.” 토토사이트
