S. Korea indicts Lotte chief on bribery charge

Irune Rengel | 23 Abril, 2017, 22:12

Prosecutors on Monday also charged Shin Dong-Bin, the chairman of the retail giant Lotte Group, with bribing Choi and Park. Prosecutors have expanded the bribery probe to Lotte Group and SK Group as well, summoning high ranking officials from the conglomerates, including each of their chairmen. Chun Doo Hwan and Roh Tae-woo were convicted in 1996 of having received bribes from conglomerates during their presidencies.

Park was forced out of office by massive, but peaceful, popular protests.She was impeached late past year, stripped of power in March and confined to a detention facility near Seoul since her arrest last month on chrges that she colluded with a confidante to extort from businesses, take bribes and commit other wrongdoing (See: S Korea ex-president Park Geun-hye jailed as court denies bail). Independent counsel Park Young-soo, however, approached the cases differently and characterized the coerced money as bribes.

Park has repeatedly apologised for the upset caused by the scandal but never admitted any wrongdoing, blaming Choi for abusing their friendship.

She allegedly used her links to the president to force local firms to "donate" almost 66 million euros to organizations, and allegedly used the cash for personal gain.

Park's indictment follows months of street protests as the corruption scandal unfolded, culminating in her ouster and arrest last month.

Prosecutors accused Park of colluding with Choi to receive 7 billion won (RM27.1 million) from Lotte for favours, they said in a statement.

"Lotte Group was found to have offered money, though it was later returned". SK was under suspicion that it sought a special pardon for its chief.

Choi, who is currently on trial over the scandal, now faces an additional charge of bribery involving Shin.

Park was formally charged with bribery, abuse of power, extortion and leaking government secrets in 18 suspected crimes, most in collusion with her friend Choi Soon-sil and a coterie of aides.

Such rallies could pressure whoever becomes her successor. It has denied the accusations, however, saying it was an "inevitable" decision to separate Ms Park from other inmates due to "security reasons", Yonhap reports. Her trial is expected to begin in May. As attempts by the independent counsel and prosecution to arrest Woo have failed to be approved by a local court, Woo will go through his trial without pretrial detention.
