Fmr. President Park Geun-hye fails to show at new trial for election interference Updated: 2018-04-17 18:02:19 KST

Park Geun-hye was set to go on trial today again, this time for allegedly intervening illegally in the nomination of candidates for her former political party.
But as in her last trial, the disgraced leader refused to attend, so the hearing has been postponed to Thursday.
The ex-president is accused of ordering her senior political secretary at the time Hyun Ki-hwan, to arrange for her allies to be nominated by the Saenuri Party in the 2016 parliamentary election.
But according to her lawyers she gave no such orders.
Earlier this month, Park Geun-hye was sentenced to 24 years behind bars.
If the impeached president does not attend the rescheduled hearing on Thursday, it's possible for her be tried in absentia.
