South Korea President Faces Impeachment Threat

Park Geun-Hye

South Korean Opposition Parties are  planning for the possible impeachment of President Park Geun-Hye, after prosecutors labelled her a co-conspirator in an influence peddling scandal involving a friend and some of Park’s closest aides.

Federal Prosecutors indicted the President’s close friend Choi Soon-Sil with abuse of authority, coercion and attempted fraud for allegedly forcing major Korean corporations to donate more than $65 Million to two sports foundations.

The prosecution claims that evidence collected, including notebooks and recorded phone conversations with aides, implicated President Park as an accomplice to the alleged crimes committed by those around her.

The South Korean constitution prohibits the President from being charged with a crime while in office, but prosecutors can put her case on hold and charge her after she leaves office.
