First Official Trial of Park Geun Hye Held in S. Korea

Pyongyang, May 25 (KCNA) — There was the first official trial of Park Geun Hye who had been indicted on charges of the abuse of political power at the Seoul Central District Court on May 23.

Park was taken to the court under guard with number 503 attached on her convict clothes, her hands handcuffed.
The prosecution side clarified that it would prove the abuse of power by Park Geun Hye and Choe Sun Sil, terming the case the abuse of “state power”, pursuance of private interests and nexus with business conglomerates.
Park and her group demanded not-guilty, asserting that there is no evidence proving bribery and conspiracy, the prosecution side charged her on presumption and the bribery case lacks proof.
Shielding their own crimes, they took issue with the corruption of the prosecution chiefs with whom they had been involved in bribery, blackmailing the prosecution side.
The court side decided to continue inquiry into the facts of the case to make the first judgment within six months.
