Ex-President Park Geun-hye’s sentence reduced to 22 years

Court in Seoul, South Korea on Friday reduced former President Park Geun-hye’s sentences for corruption and bribery by 10 years, taking her total sentence to 22 years in jail.

Park Geun-hye had been indicted for corruption and abuse of power, as well as bribery in a separate case, following a scandal in 2017 that led to her impeachment.
The original sentences of these two cases were reviewed together and reduced by 10 years to 20. A third sentence for violating electoral laws remains unchanged.
