It has been revealed that police investigating the alleged vote-manipulation of the Produce X 101 final results for X1 have discovered that the results were indeed rigged. They have found circumstantial evidence showing that final rankings of some of the member who were voted into X1 and those who were eliminated were reversed.
According to an exclusive report from No Cut News about the investigation results, the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s cyber investigation team discovered that some of the 11 trainees who were voted into X1 received votes that were supposed to belong to other, eliminated trainees. The police believe there are 2 or 3 members who were added into X1 via this method. The 2 or 3 members of X1 who are believed to have been added to X1 due to vote manipulation have not been identified, nor have the trainees who were eliminated as a part of the manipulation.
Police believe that these changes in ranking was rigged, and have booked the head PD and other production staff members on charges of obstruction of business. They are also investigating whether or not monetary transactions were made between the trainees’ agencies and the production team relating to the vote-manipulation.
Earlier today, police raided Woollim Entertainment, Starship Entertainment, and MBK Entertainment in relation to the vote-manipulation scandal.
