South Korea Waits for Constitutional Court’s Decision on Presidential Impeachment Case

By:

Political scandal surrounding Park Geun-hye, the first female president of South Korea, and Choi Sun-sil, a religious cult leader and friend of Park, have resulted in the national assembly’s passing of a motion to impeach her last month. The Constitutional Court is reviewing the motion and hearing arguments from the prosecution and the defense side to decide whether her charges merit impeachment.
