Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (February 24, 2017)
1. A candlelight vigil will be held during the weekend as the Constitutional Court’s impeachment trial against Park Geun-hye and special prosecutors’ probe on political scandal head toward a finish line. The Organization for Korean Behavioral Emergency Demanding Park Geun-hye’s Resignation named the 17th Saturday rally as “Park Geun-hye’s four years. Let’s finish it now!”
Park Geun-hye’s four years. Let’s finish it now. See you at the Gwanghwamun Square on Saturday.
2. As the deadline of special prosecutors probing massive corruption scandal gripping Korea comes to an end, they temporarily suspend indictment and are expected to indict the president either after the impeachment trial or after the resignation. As a result, prosecutors will determine whether to indict Park after she resigns or is impeached.
The destiny awaits her. But I am not sure whether prosecutors will do the same as special prosecutors did.
