South Korean prosecutors have issued arrest warrants for two former aides of President Park Geun-hye as part of an investigation into government corruption.

Ms Park’s former senior secretary for policy Ahn Jong-beom, and private secretary Jung Ho-sung, are wanted in relation to charges of fraud and abuse of power.

The president has so far refused to resign over the scandal.

She apologised on TV on Friday.

Appearing close to tears in a televised address, Ms Park admitted that she made an error in allowing her friend Choi Soon-sil inappropriate access to government policy-making.

But she denied allowing cultish rituals to be performed in the presidential palace.

Ms Choi, the daughter of a cult leader, is suspected of using their friendship to solicit donations to a non-profit fund she controlled. She is in detention facing charges.

The main opposition party, which said the president’s apology on Friday lacked sincerity, also called on Ms Park to step back from state affairs.

Ms Park became her country’s first female president when she was elected in a close-run contest in December 2012.

Ms Choi is the daughter of Choi Tae-min, a shadowy quasi-religious leader who was closely linked to Ms Park’s father, then-President Park Chung-hee.

“Appearing close to tears in a televised address, Ms Park admitted that she made an error in allowing her friend Choi Soon-sil inappropriate access to government policy-making.”

leaders get sad when they are caught out..not for the actual act..

  2. Does it worry anybody else that most of our political & corporate leaders, as well as heavily promoted entertainment figures, seem to all be members of satanic or other cults?
    Year of the fire monkey, let’s drain the swamps…bring some balance back to reality.
