Breaking News: Park Arrest Warrant Sought

South Korean prosecutors have sought an arrest warrant for ex-president Park Geun-hye (Yonhap). A week ago, Park endured marathon questioning after the court upheld an impeachment motion against her. The special prosecutor has been mulling pursuing the warrant since (Yonhap). If formally arrested, Park would be the third South Korean president to be arrested on criminal charges, following Roh Tae-woo and Chun Doo-hwan.

Park is charged with letting her long time friend, Choi Soon-sil, meddle in state affairs and abuse of power for manipulating companies to donate money to charities set up by Choi Soon-sil.
