Prosecutors to notify former president Park Geun-hye of summoning date

 

Our top story this morning. The second round of the state prosecution’s probe into the massive corruption scandal gripping Korea has begun. Prosecutors are set to notify former President Park Geun-hye and her legal team this morning of the date she will be summoned to the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office as a suspect.

She will be questioned on 13 charges, including bribery charges made against her during the initial investigation by the prosecution and that of the independent counsel’s probe. With her impeachment last Friday, Park was stripped of her immunity from criminal prosecution, which will force her to undergo interrogation by prosecutors over her alleged crimes. That means, if she’s uncooperative with the investigation, such as refusing to show up for questioning, prosecutors can ― and will likely ― request a warrant for her arrest.

 

 

 

오늘 아침 주요뉴스입니다. 2기 검찰 특별수사본부가 대한민국을 뒤흔든 부패 스캔들에 대한 수사에 본격 착수합니다. 검찰은 박근혜 전 대통령과 대리인단에게 서울중앙지검으로의 소환 날짜를 통보했습니다.

박 전 대통령은 검찰과 1기 검찰 특별수사본부의 조사에서 찾은 뇌물 수수 등을 포함해 모두 13가지 혐의에 대한 조사를 받을 예정입니다. 지난주 금요일 탄핵인용 후 박 전 대통령의 면책특권이 소멸되면서 검찰은 박 전 대통령의 혐의에 대한 강제 조사를 진행할 수 있게 되었습니다. 따라서 박 전 대통령이 출석을 불응하는 등의 비협조적인 태도를 보인다면 검찰은 체포영장을 발부할 수 있으며 발부할 가능성 또한 높습니다.
