Former South Korean president completes testimony

South Korea’s ex-President Park Geun-hye finished about eight hours of testimony at a court hearing on March 30. A judge will review the evidence and arguments presented and decide if Park should be arrested on charges including bribery.

After her testimony, Park left for the prosecutor’s office, where she will stay until the judge rules on her case.

The decision is not expected to come until early Friday March 31, a court official told Reuters.

She is accused of colluding with a friend, Choi Soon-sil, to pressure big businesses to contribute to foundations set up to back her policy initiatives.

Park was impeached by a South Korean court over the corruption scandal.
