The Latest: S. Korea Court Approves Arrest of Ex-president

The Latest: S. Korea Court Approves Arrest of Ex-president

Thursday, 30 March 2017 03:37 PM

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The Latest on legal problems of South Korea's disgraced ex-President Park Geun-hye (all times local):

4 a.m.

A South Korean court says it has approved the arrest of ex-President Park Geun-hye over corruption allegations.

Friday's ruling by the Seoul Central District Court means that prosecutors can immediately put Park in a detention facility. Prosecutors can detain her for up to 20 days before formally charging her.

Prosecutors have been pushing to arrest her over allegations that she colluded with a confidante to extort money from businesses and committed other wrongdoing.

The Constitutional Court ruled to dismiss Park over the allegations earlier in March, three months after Parliament impeached her.
