The chief justice of Mongolia's Constitutional Court has partially acknowledged allegations that he sexually harassed a South Korean flight attendant on a Korean Air flight late last month.

Incheon Police sent the case to the prosecution on Friday with a recommendation to indict without detention. 

A police official said on Thursday that Dorj Odbayar partially acknowledged the allegations during a second round of questioning the same day.

The Mongolian judge allegedly groped the buttocks of the female flight attendant on a flight from Ulaanbaatar to Incheon on October 31.

Odbayar reportedly said that while he doesn’t remember the incident due to alcohol, the harassment may have occurred if the victim is making such claims.

Odbayar is currently barred from leaving South Korea.
