Former President Park Geun-hye refused to attend the trial of Lee Jae-yong, vice president of Samsung Electronics, as a witness. It is set for tomorrow.

Former President Park submitted a notice to the court that she will not be attending the trial due to health issues and because her trial still on-going.

The court determined that it should hear the statements directly from the accused as there are suspicions that they were involved in the exchange of bribes, however as she turned down attendance as a witness, it does not seem that confrontation at court will be easy anymore.

박근혜, 이재용 재판에 불출석 통지서 제출…법정 대면 불발

박근혜 전 대통령이 이재용 삼성전자 부회장 재판에 내일로 예정됐던 증인 출석을 거부했습니다.

박 전 대통령 측은 어제 이 부회장 재판부에 건강상의 문제와 본인 재판이 계속되는 점 등을 이유로 출석하지 않겠다는 통지서를 제출했습니다.

재판부는 이들이 뇌물을 주고 받은 것으로 의심되는 만큼 당사자의 진술을 직접 들을 필요가 있다고 판단했지만, 증인 출석을 거부하면서 내일 법정 대면은 이뤄지지 않게 됐습니다.
