AFP - South Korea’s disgraced former president Park Geun-hye was jailed for 24 years Friday for corruption, closing out a dramatic fall from grace for the country’s first woman leader who became a figure of public fury and ridicule.
South Korean prosecutors will summon former president Park Geun-Hye, whose impeachment was confirmed by the country's highest court last week, for questioning as a criminal suspect, a spokesman said Tuesday.
"We will decide Wednesday when to summon former president Park and inform her," the spokesman of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors Office told AFP.
