The former South Korean President – Park Geun-hye – was removed from office, because of her role in the recent corruption scandal.
At a time where tensions are so high, what will happen? A new president must be elected in sixty days, as Ms Park has been facing impeachment over the scandal. However what will this mean for the people? Whilst China and North Korea, the public must choose a new president.
Park has been accused of; bribery, extortion and abuse of power. Although she denies any wrong doing, we will see what happens. In speeches, she said that she was open for questioning, but has refused any opportunities.
Park Geun-hye has strangely been accused of cult activities. These allegations popped up after she reconnected with an old friend. This friend had set up the cult ‘The Church of Eternal Life’. Choi Tae-min (the leader) told Ms Park that he had been visited by the soul of her late mother, whom had been assassinated by North Korea. Choi’s daughter is said to have manipulated Park to force companies to donate billions to her non-profit organisations. One of the judges on panel said she “seriously impaired the spirit of… democracy and the rule of law.”
