Seoul (People's Daily) - South Korean prosecutors on Tuesday demanded a 30-year jail term for ousted former President Park Geun-hye in a massive corruption scandal that toppled her from office early last year, Yonhap reported.
Park, 66, was indicted in April last year on 18 counts of corruption, including bribery, abuse of power and leaking state secrets.
Park didn't attend the court hearing. If the court finds her guilty, Park would be the third South Korean president to be convicted. The others were former military generals Jeon Du-hwan and Noh Tae-woo, who were involved in a 1979 coup and a 1980 civilian massacre.
