EX-PRES­I­DENT QUES­TIONED

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

SEOUL: For­mer South Korean pres­i­dent Lee Myung-bak was ques­tioned over cor­rup­tion yes­ter­day, the last of the coun­try’s liv­ing ex-lead­ers to be em­broiled in a crim­i­nal in­quiry. Graft claims in­volv­ing the 76-year-old’s rel­a­tives and aides dur­ing his term have mounted re­cently as pros­e­cu­tors probe cases of bribery amount­ing to mil­lions. The probe means all four liv­ing for­mer South Korean pres­i­dents have been con­victed, charged, or in­ves­ti­gated for crim­i­nal of­fences. – AFP
