S. Korean prosecutors demand 30-year imprisonment for ousted President Park

South Korean prosecutors on Tuesday demanded 30-year imprisonment for the ousted President Park Geun-hye, according to local media reports.

Prosecutors said that Park privatized her presidential power, mandated by people, and damaged constitutional value, demanding Park be fined 118.5 billion won (110.5 million U.S. dollars).

Park was removed out of office in March last year as the constitutional court upheld her impeachment, which the National Assembly already supported.

The ousted president was taken into custody in the same month, and indicted on 18 counts of corruption.
