The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

SEOUL: South Korean Pres­i­dent Park Geun-hye will not re­spond to a re­quest by pros­e­cu­tors to ques­tion her this week, her lawyer said yes­ter­day, amid a deep­en­ing po­lit­i­cal cri­sis over a close friend ac­cused of med­dling in state af­fairs. The lawyer, Yoo Yeong-ha, said Park had to deal with the “fast-mov­ing sit­u­a­tion” and so there was lit­tle time for her to co­op­er­ate with pros­e­cu­tors. ”It is re­gret­table that the pres­i­dent can­not co­op­er­ate with face-to­face ques­tion­ing the pros­e­cu­tors have asked for by Nov 29,” Yoo said. – Reuters
