Esports team Panda Global has released Lee “Infiltration” Seon-woo, following the allegations made against the player of domestic violence. The South Korean former Evo champion was found accused by an online report that saw Lee being benched and having any travel arrangements withdrawn.

A statement from Panda Global read: “Panda Global does not condone violence in any form, however, we had a duty to perform a thorough investigation and not to just move forward on partial, unverified information — to do so would be betraying the core principles this team is built on. Doing the right thing is the foundation of Panda Global, as is being an organization that focuses on the players and community first and foremost.”

Panda Global managed to obtain a 15 minute long audio recording of an altercation between Lee and a woman, with the accused being arrested back in October last year. The female in question pressed charges against Lee a month later, after she was found to have wrist injuries and bruising. Shortly after, Lee was fined 700,000 won.

Lee denies the claims, and states that he pulled out of the Capcom Pro Tour to protect his team, stating that it was “because I could not do any more damage to my team and the [fighting game community].”
