Thousands of South Korean residents took to the streets in Seoul on Saturday night, to express their discontent about the scandal that President Park Geun-hye’s longtime friend Choi Soon-sil has been interfering in the country’s politics.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
Scandal in Korea now also affects Samsung
The South Korean authorities have raided Samsung premises. They investigate whether the electronics corporation donated money to Choi Soon-sil, president Park’s confidante who is at the center of a major scandal.
Samsung is accused of giving 2.8 million euros to a company owned by Choi Soon-sil and her daughter. The money, according to the Yonhap news agency, was possibly used for horse training of the daughter who was formerly a member of South Korea’s national equestrian team.
It is unclear yet what Samsung may have received in exchange for the gift.
The scandal around her confidante has landed Park in big trouble. The 64-year-old president has apologized twice, but many South Koreans are not satisfied with that.
Choi Soon-sil (60) was arrested a week ago. Her friendship with Park emerged in the 1970s her father was a cult [Church of Eternal Life] leader; and Park’s father was the dictator of South Korea. Choi is suspected of using the friendship to interfere with state affairs and to enrich herself.
