Trial for former president Park Geun-hye to resume on Tuesday


Former president Park Geun-hye’s criminal
trial is set to resume today,… following a one-day postponement over her failure to
appear in court. The Seoul Central District Court pushed the
first hearing from Monday,… saying it wanted to give Park some time to carefully consider
her attendance. The court, however, is expected to restart
the trial on Tuesday,… with or without Park’s attendance,… who has clearly expressed her
will to not attend,… citing poor health. The hearing comes around six weeks after Park’s
legal team resigned en masse to protest a court’s decision to extend her detention for
another six months. Park faces charges of bribery, abuse of power,
leaking of state secrets and colluding with her confidante, Choi Soon-sil, to extort millions
of dollars from local conglomerates.
