SEOUL: South Korea’s Supreme Court has upheld a 20-year jail term for former President Park Geun-hye who was found guilty of abuse of power and coercion.

The ruling on Thursday upheld a reduced jail term given to Park in July after she was originally sentenced to serve a prison term of around 30 years. Prosecutors had tried to appeal against that reduction.

Park, South Korea’s first female president, was ousted from power in 2017 over a vast corruption scandal. The court on Thursday also upheld her fine of US $17million.
