South Korean media said, the prosecutors have decided to request an arrest warrant for ex-President Park Geun-hye. South Korean prosecutors say they have asked a court to issue an arrest warrant for former President Park Geun-hye to get to the case. For this is the latest development in a corruption scandal that has gripped the country for months and saw Park booted from office.
South Korean media are reporting prosecutors want Park’s arrest over fears she would destroy evidence and given that other suspects have been arrested, they say it would be unfair not to arrest her.Park was questioned by prosecutors last week and is facing a number of charges.
She is suspected of accepting millions of dollars in bribes from conglomerates.
She is also accused of abuse of power and leaking classified information to her long-time friend Choi Soon-sil who is at the center of the scandal.
