Korean Prosecutors Tell Park to Appear Next Week for Questioning

South Korean prosecutors told former leader Park Geun-hye to appear for questioning next week as a suspect in an influence-peddling scandal that cost her the presidency. According to a text message from the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office on Wednesday, prosecutors ordered Park to show up on March 21 at 9:30 a.m. local time. Park’s lawyer stated Park will fully cooperate with the investigation. The move comes less than a week after the constitutional court affirmed parliament’s decision to impeach.
Park is accused of pressuring top business executives, including Samsung Electronics Co. heir-apparent Jay Y. Lee, to donate tens of millions of dollars to foundations run by her longtime friend Choi Soon-sil in return for government favors.
