Last year, the owner of a delivery service agency passed away on his own after leaving a message that he had been harassed by the workers of the delivery union.
Afterwards, the police, who started the investigation, applied for an arrest warrant for four courier union members, and it was confirmed that there were more victims of bullying.

Mr. Lee was not the only owner who complained of damage.
Several courier agents filed complaints one after another saying they had been subjected to similar bullying.
The police, who investigated the case, applied for an arrest warrant for four union members on charges of obstruction of business and defamation.
The courier union filed a petition to the court requesting the dismissal of the warrant, stating that 'there was a rough and frivolous part of the union's activities, but harassment was not the purpose'.
