South Korean Pres­i­dent Park Geun-hye ex­pressed de­fi­ance to­ward cor­rup­tion al­le­ga­tions as she va­cated the pres­i­den­tial palace and re­turned to her home Sun­day, two days af­ter the Con­sti­tu­tional Court re­moved her from of­fice. In her first pub­lic com­ments since the court’s rul­ing, Park said in state­ment, “Although it will take time, I be­lieve the truth will cer­tainly come out.” Park may face crim­i­nal charges for sus­pi­cions that she col­luded with a con­fi­dante to ex­tort money and fa­vors from com­pa­nies, and al­lowed the friend to se­cretly in­ter­fere with state af­fairs.
