"Former South Korean president Park jailed 24 years for corruption
SEOUL: South Korea's disgraced former president Park Geun-hye was jailed for 24 years Friday (Apr 6) for corruption, closing out a dramatic fall from grace for the country's first woman leader who became a figure of public fury and ridicule.
She was found guilty on charges of bribery, coercion and abuse of power, and ordered to pay a fine of 18 billion won (US$17 million).
"The amount of bribery the accused received or demanded in collaboration with Choi amounts to more than 23 billion won," Judge Kim Se-Yoon said, referring to Park's secret confidante and long-time friend Choi Soon-sil.
"I sentence the accused to 24 years in prison and 18 billion won in fines.""
How dramatic can this be! Especially after watching many many Korea TV n movie shows that portrait the Korean's political scene as very corrupt n impossible to get justice fairlt n squarely!!
An opportunity lost for the 1st Female President to show the way!!
Now we know that even in a corrupt regime, dark forces cannot rule forever!!
There will b righteous forces to overcome the dark forces!!
