Korean handball officials upset with referring decisions

Korean officials believe that they received unfair treatment from Jordanian referees at the Korean-Kuwait men’s handball match in Japan as they lost 28-20.

Members of the Korea Handball Federation are planning to visit the Kuwait Embassy in Seoul, handing in a statment of protest of the referree’s decision making.

Korea will have to win all three of its remaining games against Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Japan to move forward to the Beijing Olympics.

“We witnessed an unacceptable situation,” said the vice president of the Japan Handball Federation in an interview with a Japanese newspaper. “Should this situation continue, none of the East Asian countries would be able to participate in Olympic games forever.”
