You might remember the incident around the time of IFA 2014 where several LG employees were accused of purposely damaging competitions washing machines in Berlin’s retail stores, one of them Jo Seong-jun, the head of LG’s Home Appliance and Air Solution Company. What sounded like something out of the schoolyard at first and also seemed settled after the people involved agreed to pay for the damage, might now come back to bite LG in the rear.

Samsung, whose machines were damaged, didn’t think that this was funny and reported it to the South Korean authorities who now apparently banned the executing from traveling to CES in a couple of days. LG is still denying all claims that it was done on purpose and is trying to get the flight ban lifted for the Consumer Electronics Show. On the other hand, Samsung maintains that the flight block indicates the severity of the incident.
