Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (March 15, 2017)
1. South Korean prosecutors who took over the influence-peddling scandal case from a special prosecution team would notify ousted President Park Geun-hye when she would be summoned. They would summon Park for questioning as a suspect as she would be indicted as a suspect.
Prosecutors never notify and negotiate with a criminal. Just go and arrest her.
2. As prosecutors officially announce the plan to investigate ousted President Park, she is likely to be the third former leader as a suspect, standing in a photo spot in front of the Prosecution’s Office. Roh Tae-woo was the first former president to be summoned by prosecutors.
I wonder whether she can still wave her hand with a big smile. I am sure she is likely to do it.
