SEOUL, April 2 (Yonhap) -- Prosecutors said Sunday they will question former President Park Geun-hye this week for the first time since her arrest over a corruption scandal that led to her removal from office.

Park was taken into custody on Friday after a court issued a warrant for her arrest. She faces charges of colluding with her friend Choi Soon-sil to extort money from conglomerates, including bribes from Samsung Group.

The former president will be questioned at her detention center south of Seoul on Tuesday, the prosecutors said.
