Former Supreme Court chief indicted over power abuse scandal

 

Yang Sung Tae, a former chief justice of the Supreme Court was indicted Monday on more than 40 counts criminal charges.

 

The indictment comes about three weeks after Yang was placed under pre-indictment detention.

 

Prosecutors also indicted two other retired top court justices: Park Byong Dae and Ko Young Han for their alleged involvement.

 

Yang who served as head of the top court from 2011 to 2017 is accused of using trials as political leverage to lobby the office of then-President Park Geun Hye to earn her approval for the establishment of a separate court of appeals.

 

Facing at least 40 counts of criminal charges, Yang is the first former head of the Supreme Court to be arrested and tried as a criminal suspect.
