The Seoul Central District Court is holding a hearing where it will decide whether or not to extend the detention period for the ousted former President Park -- while her trial rumbles on.
If the extension is granted, she'll spend the next six months in jail.
If not, Park will be allowed to go home, upping the risk of more delay tactics and no-shows at her trial.
Prosecutors say that, if Park is released from custody, she is likely to destroy evidence of her crimes-- by coordinating statements with key figures in the scandal.
The six-month limit on her original detention expires on October 16th, but the court's decision is expected by the end of this week.
