Scouts to leave Jamboree over alleged sex crime

80 South Korean scouts and leaders announced their departure from the 2023 Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree on Sunday, stating that the necessary precautions were not done to protect teenagers after a guy entered the women’s showers.
With 80 attendees at the jamboree, including 72 youths, the North Jeolla Province Scout Association said that they will leave the camp on Sunday because “a Thai scout leader came into the women’s shower room on Wednesday.”

About 100 people, according to him, saw what transpired.

According to the Korean scout official, the Jamboree Committee gave the Thai scout leader “a simple warning” and his association had also reported the incident to the local police.

At a news conference held at the Jamboree press center on the campground, he stated, “The seriousness of the matter was acknowledged (by the police), and it was sent to the Jeonbuk Police Agency’s Women and Youth Investigation Unit.

The accused scout leader’s accuser, the Jamboree Committee, was chastised by the leader for not taking any steps to safeguard the victims or keep them apart from him.

The official reported that the scouts claimed they were afraid and did not want to stay at the Jamboree camping.
