SEOUL, April 16 — Korean Air Lines said that it has suspended senior vice president Cho Hyun-min from her duties as of today following a police probe into her alleged abusive behaviour.

The company will take appropriate action after the police probe ends, the airline said in a statement.

Korean Air Lines’ unions have called for Cho, the youngest daughter of its chairman and a sister of the infamous ‘nut rage’ heiress, to step down from management after media reports said she threw water at the face of an advertising agency manager, sparking a public backlash. — AFP
