SEOUL, June 9 (Yonhap) -- Former President Park Geun-hye's sister has been indicted on charges of fraud, the prosecution said Friday.

Park Geun-ryoung, a younger sibling of the ousted former president, is accused of receiving 100 million won (US$89,000) in checks from a social welfare organization in 2014 after promising to secure a supply contract for its products with a public institution.

A special inspector under the then president filed charges against her in July.
