South Korean prosecutors announced Monday that they were seeking the arrest of Park Geun-hye, the former president who was ousted over a corruption scandal. Park and her longtime friend and confidante, Choi Soon-sil, have been accused of colluding to pressure big businesses to donate to two foundations created to support Park’s policies. Both deny any wrongdoing. Prosecutors say arresting Park will prevent her from destroying evidence. A court hearing is expected to take place Thursday.
