South Korea prosecutors to question ousted leader next week

WEB DESK

S Korean prosecutors summon Park for questioning Ousted South Korean President Park Geun-hye has been asked to appear before prosecutors next week over the corruption scandal that triggered her downfall.

She will have to appear for questioning in Seoul on the 21st of this month. Ms Park was dismissed by the Constitutional Court last Friday over the scandal also involving her longtime confidante.

Following the ruling, Ms Park who is a criminal suspect in the case, was stripped of power and executive privileges, including protection from criminal indictment. Her lawyer said, she will cooperate with the probe.

Meanwhile, the election to choose a successor for Ms Park will be held on 9th May. By law, South Korea must hold a national vote to find her successor within two months of the ruling. Moon Jae-in, a liberal opposition leader who lost the 2012 presidential election to Park, is the favorite to be the country’s next leader in opinion surveys.
