South Korean Olympic player Jung Jae-kun was bound over for 12 months in the sum of $2,000 by Eastern Court yesterday for his part in a violent end to the Super Commercial Cup match on Sunday. Jung was arrested after throwing a punch at Frankwell's Ukrainian Dmitri Bazelevski during a stormy encounter towards the end of the game. The court heard Bazelevski bumped into the 26-year-old player during a heated encounter at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium which ended 99-73 in favour of Frankwell. Jung punched Bazelevski and left a two-centimetre laceration on his victim's face, magistrate Peter Line was told. The Ukrainian player was taken to hospital and required stitches for the wound. No fracture was found after an X-ray examination. The assault was witnessed by referee Lau Sing-kee, 54, the court heard. But noting the trivial nature of the incident, the police decided to have Jung bound over. Jung was banned from the tournament by the organiser, the Hong Kong Basketball Association, after the incident. Jung, who returned to Seoul with his teammates hours after his court appearance, may still face a civil lawsuit by the Ukrainian national basketball team and punishment by the South Korean Basketball Association - including a ban from next month's Atlanta Olympics. Frankwell team manager Fung Siu-wai said yesterday their legal adviser had been examining the possibility of filing a civil lawsuit against Jung, on behalf of the Ukrainian side. 'The Ukrainian national team are seeking US$10,000 [HK$77,300] compensation for the lawyer's fee and Bazelevski's medical fee,' said Mr Fung. 'And they also demand a written apology to Bazelevski and the Ukrainian Basketball Association. 'The lawsuit has nothing to do with Frankwell since the Ukrainian team are only our guest players. All we have done is provide them with our legal adviser.' The association said its council would decide whether to report the case to the Asian Basketball Confederation and FIBA, the world governing body.
