April 17, 2017
South Korea — South Korean prosecutors say they've indicted jailed former President Park Geun-hye and sent her case to a criminal court over a high-profile corruption scandal.
The Seoul prosecutors' office on Monday made the indictment.
Park was arrested and confined to a detention facility near Seoul last month on allegations that she colluded with a confidante to extort from businesses and commit other wrongdoing.
