Infiltration removed from Panda Global roster, out of 2018, 2019 CPT

Esports team Panda Global and Capcom have both come to separate decisions regarding accusations leveled against Seon-woo "Infiltration" Lee, and as a result he is no longer with Panda Global and he will sit out both the end of the 2018 Capcom Pro Tour and all of 2019.

The accusations center around a post made anonymously in September 2018 accusing Infiltration of domestic violence, infidelity and fraud.

As such, on Nov. 15, 2018, Panda Global issued a statement terminating its contract with Infiltration. Capcom, meanwhile, released a separate statement announcing that "while this incident did not happen during a Capcom Pro Tour event, we do not condone any acts of violence or harassment" and as a first offense has removed Infiltration from the end of Capcom Pro Tour 2018. He will also not participate in the 2019 season.

Panda Global has released the findings of its investigation, complete with the initial charges leveled against Infiltration and the discoveries made by the organization. Readers can look over the results on Scribd.
