Park Geun-Hye impeached from office

10 March 2017 International

South Korea’s President, Park Geun-hye, has become the country’s first democratically elected leader to be forced out of office.

A panel of eight judges today unanimously upheld parliament’s decision to impeach Ms Park over her role in a corruption scandal involving her close friend, Choi Soon-sil.

She has been directed to leave office, her official residence, as a presidential election will be held within the next sixty days.

She now loses her presidential immunity and could face criminal charges.
