Choi Soon-sil says she will cooperate with prosecutors’ investigation if summoned

 

President Park Geun-hye’s long-time confidante Choi Soon-sil, who’s at the center of a corruption scandal, has said through her lawyer that, if summoned, she’ll return to Korea and cooperate with the investigation. Choi is suspected of her using connections to President Park to solicit and embezzle a massive amount of corporate donations.

Choi’s lawyer told reporters this afternoon that she will speak the truth to prosecutors to clear the suspicions and prevent social confusion, but she hasn’t been summoned yet. Choi’s message conveyed that she’s aware of the seriousness of the situation, that she has no plans to hide or flee, and that she will submit to punishment if she’s found guilty of a crime. Her response comes after her two people close to her, Lee Seung-chul and Koh Yeong-tae, were called in by the prosecution as witnesses.

최씨의 변호사는 오후 기자들에게 최씨가 혐의를 벗고 사회혼란을 막기 위해 검찰에 진실을 밝힐 것이라고 말했지만 아직 최씨는 소환되지 않은 상태입니다. 최씨는 이러한 발언을 통해 현재 상황의 중대함을 최씨가 잘 알고 있으며 숨거나 도망가지 않고 죄가 있다면 처벌을 받겠다는 입장을 전하였습니다.  최씨의 이러한 대응은 측근인 이승철, 고영태 씨가 참고인 신분으로 검찰에 소환된 후 나온 것입니다.
