First hearing of former president Park Geun Hye to be held on May 2


The first hearing in the trial of former president Park Geun-hye is to take place before the May 9 presidential election.


According to legal circles, the first hearing of preparatory proceeding for Park, who is accused of bribery, abuse of power, coercion and leaking government secrets, will be held on May 2nd.


The proceeding is scheduled to take place at courtroom No.417 where trails for Chun Doo Hwan and Noh Tae Woo were held in the March of 1996.


Many expected the trials to take place after the May 9 election; however, considering the gravity of the case, the court seems to have expedited their schedule.


It is unclear whether Park will show up for the preparatory proceeding as it is not obligatory.
