SEOUL The South Korean specific prosecutor’s business office claimed on Monday it will not be able to query President Park Geun-hye in particular person as part of its investigation into an impact-peddling scandal that threatens to topple Park.
Prosecution spokesman Lee Kyu-chul claimed it was regrettable prosecutors would not be able to query her in particular person. He claimed Park’s business office had refused a demand from customers by prosecutors for a video or audio recording of any questioning.
Final decisions on indictments for all suspects embroiled in the scandal, together with executives from Samsung Group [SARG.UL], South Korea’s major conglomerate, would be produced by Tuesday.
