0

Hungarian swimmer Tamas Kenderesi has been charged with a sexual harassment offence following the world championships in South Korea but has been given permission to leave the country, prosecutors said Wednesday.

The 22-year-old Olympic bronze medallist was formally accused of committing an indecent act by compulsion, an official at the Gwangju District Prosecutors’ Office told AFP.

She said Kenderesi had paid a deposit of three million won ($2,500) towards any fine. The charge is a summary offence under South Korean law and will be dealt with administratively, without a courtroom trial.
