MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Former South Korean President Park Geun-hye, detained on Friday over corruption allegations, will be questioned by prosecutors at her detention center next week, media reported Sunday.
According to Yonhap news agency, the prosecutors intend to question Park on Tuesday on the bribery allegations involving her, her associate Choi Soon-sil and Samsung's CEO Lee Jae-yong.
In October 2016, the scandal broke out around Park and her friend Choi, who allegedly was allowed to meddle in state affairs without holding any official post. Choi was also suspected of helping to extort money from big corporations, in particular, Samsung. The scandal resulted in Park’s impeachment in December 2016 that was confirmed by the country's Constitutional Court on March 10.
