'I'm not in a cult, all of this is my fault'- S.Korea president Park Geun-hye apologizes for abuse of power scandal

South Korean president Park Geun-hye, suffering from the worst rejection of a sitting president in the country's political history, has apologized for the second time this week for the abuse of power scandal that has rocked her government tis week.
 

Federal prosecutors on Wednesday issued an arrest warrant for Park's close friend and informal advisor, Choi Soon-sil, on charges of abuse of power and attempted government fraud, and Park, South Korea's first female president, is being accused of allowing Choi to view confidential documents,presidential speeches and accumulating millions of dollars in donations to her foundations despite not holding an official government position.
 
In the apology made today, Friday, Park said she'll take all responsibility for her close friend Choi Soon-sil's access to government documents and was willing to be investigated, she even denied being in a cult.


"All of this happening is my fault. It happened because of my neglect," she said in an emotional televised address Friday.
"I feel a huge responsibility [for the scandal] deep in my heart," 

"There are even talks of me being immersed in a cult or resorting to shamanism in the Blue House. I would like to say that this is absolutely not true," she said.

"I put too much faith in a personal relationship and didn't look carefully at what was happening".
"Sad thoughts trouble my sleep at night. I realise that whatever I do, it will be difficult to mend the hearts of the people, and then I feel a sense of shame and ask myself, 'Is this the reason I became president?'"

Park said anyone found to have done wrong would be punished, and "if necessary, I'm determined to let prosecutors investigate me and accept an investigation by an independent counsel too".

Park's rating among South Koreans is now 5%, with 89% having a negative opinion of her performance since the scandal broke out according to a new Gallup poll in South Korea.

Hi Linda, all my friends think you are amazing. They think you are one of the most 'Out of League' Women in the world because of what you achieved and the obvious fact you are Rich and Beautiful. They would love to date you just for the ego trip!! But as i said it is just a dream for most guys because you are so 'Out of League'.

Anyway, more importantly i just wanted to say what a great blog this is. I love reading all the topics. James

That's what happens when you leave women on a sensitive positions their too emotional with Their dealings. Reasons am still skeptical about voting Hilary Clinton into the most powerful sit on earth.

Forgive her? Was she sleep walking when she was abusing her power? The only reason she apologised was because she was caught.

The world is not like Nigeria, where we turn a blind eye to corruption and abuse.

Bonario... Beg your ancestors to give you clarity of mind. A student of law, with the wisdom of a single celled organism, your clients will be in trouble.
