South Korean court extends detention of ex-president Park Geun-hye

Court to announce decision on extending detention period for ousted former President Park

A South Korean court on Friday chose to extend the detention of impeached President Park Geun-hye who has been in custody and stood trial over corruption charges including bribery. If the extension is granted, she'll spend the next six months in jail. The court said they have made a decision to do so as there's a possibility for Park to destroy evidence, in ways like coordinating her statements with other key figures involved with the case.

A judge will study evidence and hear arguments from prosecutors and Park's lawyers before deciding whether an arrest warrant should be issued.

Park had not attended the court hearings several times citing health problems such as a toe pain. If not, Park will be allowed to go home, upping the risk of more delay tactics and no-shows at her trial.

She can now be held until April of next year while she waits for the outcome of a trial that has seen around four sessions a week since June.

Any remaining tickets from the schools' allotments will go on sale online only through sprintcenter.com starting at 10 a.m. The schools will split the 18,000 tickets available and each school's athletic department will handle sales.

Legal experts expect Park's first ruling to be out by the end of November.

The additional warrant has been issued based on the charges that were not included in the first warrant, in which the prosecution accused Park of taking or demanding kickbacks from two other conglomerates - SK and Lotte.

Her case is tied to that of Samsung Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong, who began his appeal this week against a five-year prison sentence for his part in the presidential scandal that led to weekly mass protests on South Korea's streets from late last year.
