Prosecutor: South Korea President a Suspect in Corruption Case
South Korean President Park Geun-hye is being investigated as a suspect in a corruption scandal tied to Park in which three people were indicted, prosecutors said Sunday. Those individuals include a friend of Park and two former aides. In South Korea, a sitting president is immune to prosecution. “Her rights of getting a fair chance of due legal process has been taken away,” a spokesperson for Park said. Choi Soon-sil, the friend of Park who was indicted, is accused of using her ties with Park to funnel money to her charitable organizations.
