Ousted South Korea leader slammed for defiance

A South Korean animal rights group has filed a complaint with police against former president Park Geun-hye for abandoning nine pet dogs in the presidential Blue House after being dismissed from office.

After questioning, Prosecutors will consider seeking a warrant for Park's arrest Prosecutors announced on March 15 that former president Park Geun-hye had been given notice to appear at Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office on the morning of March 21.

A prosecution team looking into an influence-peddling scandal that led to Park's ouster grilled the employees in charge of duty-free shops on Monday, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported the official, who asked not to be named, as saying.

"To stabilize state affairs and fairly administer the presidential election, I've reached the judgment that it is inappropriate for me to run in the election", Hwang said during a cabinet meeting Wednesday.

Park, 65, became the first democratically elected South Korean president to be removed from office, after the Constitutional Court on Friday upheld parliament's vote last December to impeach her.

"But the criminal investigation will continue and could yield more explosive details about corruption at the top levels of government and business".

The Constitutional Court ruled on Friday to formally end her presidency over a huge political scandal involving her and a confidante.

Even after her impeachment, she remains defiant. Park's attorneys said the same day that she would appear. Park told staff to take care of the dogs before leaving the Blue House on Sunday, he said.

But, Park left behind her nine pet dogs at the presidential Blue House. After questioning Park, the Prosecutors are planning to consider the option of requesting a warrant for her arrest.
