S.Korea: It will take time, but the truth will be out, ousted and disgraced Park says

S.Korea: It will take time, but the truth will be out, ousted and disgraced Park says

Ousted and disgraced South Korean President Park Geun-hye noted moments after leaving the presidential Blue House on Sunday that the truth behind her travails will be revealed in a matter of time.

Park made the comments two days after a court dismissed her over a corruption scandal, even as she now faces life as a private citizen and also the possibility of serving jail time.

Upon arriving at her private home in the Gangnam district of the capital, Seoul, Park issued a statement in a defiant tone.

“I feel sorry that I could not finish the mandate given to me as president,” a spokesman for Park, member of parliament Min Kyung-wook, quoted her as saying.

“It will take time, but I believe the truth will be revealed,” Park said in her first public comments since her dismissal.

The 65-year-old who is the first South Korean leader to be ousted from office accepted responsibility for the events that culminated in the Constitutional Court on Friday upholding a parliamentary impeachment vote over an influence-peddling scandal that has shaken the political and business elite.

“I take responsibility for the outcome of all this,” Park was quoted as saying.
