Prosecutors said Tuesday they plan to summon former President Park Geun-hye this week for questioning over a corruption scandal.
Park will be summoned as a suspect over allegations she colluded with her friend Choi Soon-sil to extort money from Samsung Group.
"We will decide tomorrow when to summon former President Park and inform her," an official of a special prosecutors team handling the investigation told reporters. "We will let you know once we are prepared."
The decision comes after Park was dismissed by a court last week over the scandal and thus stripped of her presidential immunity from criminal prosecution. (Yonhap)
