THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: Fourth hearing on the President Park impeachment case
The fourth hearing of the impeachment case of South Korean president Park Geun-hye held earlier today.
Former president as well as a current reporter of a local daily Segye Ilbo, both testified about how the daily were able to obtain documents that detailed the ties between Chung Yoon-hoi, the ex-husband of Choi Soon-sil, and senior presidential officials that led it to run an exclusive report in late 2014.
The daily said it was subject to tax audits and search and seizure raids after the report was published and that the Park administration had ordered the actions.
Meanwhile, a former member of a special investigative team that looked into the Sewol tragedy said based on his ten-year experience working for the presidential office of Cheong Wa Dae, the top office can promptly deliver emergency situations to the president's secretaries.
