State prosecutors summon Park Geun-hye for questioning on Tuesday Updated: 2017-03-20 12:25:31 KST

Impeached former President Park Geun-hye is due to face questioning by state prosecutors on Tuesday, eleven days after the Constitutional Court upheld the National Assembly's impeachment motion and removed her from office.
If Park appears as she's promised, she will become the fourth disgraced former leader to be grilled by the prosecution in Korea's Constitutional history.
She's accused of multiple charges, including abuse of power and bribery.
She allegedly allowed her confidante Choi Soon-sil -- a civilian with no government post -- to meddle in state affairs and the two are accused of conspiring to collect bribes from the nation’s biggest conglomerates in exchange for political favors.
Gearing up for the probe, prosecutors questioned SK Group chairman Chey Tae-won and Jang Sun-wook, the head of Lotte Duty Free, over the weekend.
