PARK SUM­MONED

For­mer pres­i­dent’s lawyer says she will co­op­er­ate with the probe

New Straits Times - - World -

SEOUL Con­sti­tu­tional Court last Fri­day, would be re­quired to at­tend a pros­e­cu­tors’ of­fice here on Tues­day, a spokesman said.

A crim­i­nal sus­pect in the scan­dal, Park had re­peat­edly re­fused to make her­self avail­able for ques­tion­ing by the pros­e­cu­tors, be­fore the coun­try’s high­est court con­firmed a par­lia­men­tary im­peach­ment mo­tion against her.

Fri­day’s fi­nal rul­ing stripped her of power and ex­ec­u­tive priv­i­leges, in­clud­ing pro­tec­tion from crim­i­nal in­dict­ment, and she left the pres­i­den­tial palace at the week­end.

Park’s lawyer said yes­ter­day she would “co­op­er­ate” with the probe.
