After a series of credible sources countering the validity of the only “evidence” given by the accuser (Maple), suddenly the “original” icloud audio recording was deleted by the police and claimed to be unrecoverable. This was only briefly reported in the news and treated without much severity (See article use google translate for english), which wrote “It was confirmed that the victim’s important transcripts were accidentally deleted by the investigator ahead of the courtroom demonstration in the trial of Jung Myeong-seok (78) of the Christian Gospel Mission (aka JMS) on charges of sexual assault against a woman. According to the local legal community on the 17th, the file recorded by victim A (28), a Hong Kong national who first accused Jung Myeong-seok of semi-rape, was deleted from the cloud. It was found that the recorded file was deleted by mistake while the victim’s lawyer attended and the police investigator manipulated the cloud to check whether it was working properly before the court demonstration of the transcript ahead of the trial of the defendant Jeong Myeong-seok at the Daejeon District Court on the 3rd.”
Already, Maple did not have the original audio file recorded on her iphone, claiming that she had sold her iphone. Hence, the next best “original” would have been the file on icloud. Yet, stupendously, the file was “accidentally” deleted unrecoverablly before it was supposed to be forensically examined in greater detail. iPhone and iCloud users would know that it would take deliberate effort with multiple clicks to delete a file from iCloud permanently, given that there is a 30-day recoverable period for all files accidentally deleted.

There is little room to believe that this was a genuine mistake. It is reasonable to conclude that it could be a case of deliberate manipulation of “evidence”, while masking the whole accusation with an avalanche of media attacks that blurs truth from repeated lies. Repeated and widely spread lies are not equal to the truth. May God bring the truth to light.
