Seoul Court Reduces Ex-President Park's Prison Term To 20 Years

Former President Park Geun-hye has been given a reduced prison term in retrial on charges that she took bribes and illegally used the government's off-the-book funds.

The Seoul High Court on Friday shortened Park's sentence to 20 years from the 30 years she previously received in an appeals trial.

This is because the high court found her not guilty of most charges related to coercion or the drafting of a so-called whitelist of pro-government cultural figures.

The former leader was also fined 18 billion won and ordered to forfeit 3.5 billion won.

As in previous court hearings and rulings, Park was not present when the court delivered its decision, as she has been boycotting all her trials.
