South Korea’s Park will not appeal jail term: reports

SEOUL, South Korea: South Korea’s disgraced former president Park Geun-hye will not appeal her 24-year prison sentence for corruption, reports said Monday.

Park, 66, who was removed from office over a massive corruption scandal last year, was convicted of multiple criminal charges including bribery and abuse of power at a trial earlier this month.She has boycotted all court hearings since October, claiming unfair treatment.

On Monday Park submitted an appeal waiver to the Seoul Central District Court to override an appeal filed by her younger sister last week, Yonhap news agency cited court officials as saying.But an appeal hearing will nonetheless take place as prosecutors are seeking harsher punishment. The Yonhap report said Park would boycott the process.
