South Korea’s top Court has upheld a twenty year prison sentence for Former President Park Geun-hye, the Country’s first Female leader over corruption.
According to the report, the Supreme Court of Korea announced its Verdict in an appeal filed by prosecutors against last year’s ruling that reduced Park’s combined prison term from thirty to twenty years.
The Supreme Court maintained the Verdict, including a fine of eighteen billion Won and the decision to clear Park of extortion and part of abuse of power charges.
However, she will now serve twenty-two years in jail, which include a two year prison term in another misuse of power case.
