Lawmakers to grill witnesses on whereabouts of president in hours after ferry sinking


We start at Korea’s National Assembly, which is set to hold its third hearing into the corruption and influence-peddling scandal surrounding President Park Geun-hye and her close friend, Choi Soon-sil. The focus this time is uncovering the truth about the whereabouts of the president during what have since been dubbed the “missing seven hours” after the Sewol-ho ferry sank on April 16th, 2014.

Sixteen witnesses will be present at parliament for the hearing. More than half work in the medical industry, including two of the president’s former personal doctors. Lawmakers are expected to quiz them over speculation that President Park was receiving beauty treatments on the day the ferry sank in waters off southwestern Korea, killing more than 300 people.



박근혜 대통령과 최순실 씨를 둘러싼 부패 및 국정농단 스캔들에 관련된 3차 국회 청문회 소식을 전해 드립니다. 이번 청문회에서는 2014년4월 16일 세월호 침몰 후 ‘세월호 7시간 의혹’으로 불리고 있는 대통령의 행방에 대한 진실을 밝히는 것에 대해 초점을 맞추었습니다.

이번 청문회에서는 16명의 증인이 출석합니다. 박 대통령의 전 주치의 2명을 포함해 절반 이상이 의료업에 종사합니다. 국회의원들은 남서부 해안에서 300명이상이 사망한 세월호 침몰 사고일 박 대통령이 미용 시술을 받았느냐는 의혹에 대해 질의할 것으로 예상됩니다.
