Park says she is not part of religious cult, shamanistic rituals
Seoul: South Korea’s President Park Geun- hye on Friday appeared tearful as she apologised for the influence peddling scandal that has rocked her administration. In a live televised address, she denied being a part of any religious cult or shamanistic rituals and said “It is not true that I am a cult follower and held shamanistic rituals at the presidential Blue House.
The 64-year-old leader added that her “heart was breaking” over the scandal and said that she will fully cooperate with prosecutors in their inquiry. She further said that every person involved should be held up to scrutiny, including herself. “My heart is breaking for having caused pain and to those government officials and people in the field and the industries who helped me, I have caused huge disappointment to you, I feel really sorry. Everything is my fault and my mistake and I feel huge responsibility for this,” Park said.
She further said “I will fully cooperate with the prosecutors’ investigation. If necessary, I am willing to be investigated by them and will accept a probe by an independent counsel.”
