Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (February 16, 2017)
1. South Korea’s special prosecutors have 12 days to its current investigation deadline. They make all-out efforts to investigate Samsung vice chairman Lee Jae-yong on a charge of bribing South Korean President Park Geun-hye, but they still have other tasks including arresting Lee, questioning the president in person, search and seizure toward Cheong Wa Dae (Bluehouse) and arresting and charging the former presidential secretary Woo Byung-woo.
Special prosecutors have done well so far, but they need an extension to its deadline.
