South Korea’s disgraced president struck a defiant tone on
Friday morning when a ""
target="_blank">constitutional court unanimously upheld
decision to impeach Park Guen-hye: she did not appear in court and
a spokesman said she would not be making any comment nor "nofollow" href=
target="_blank">would she leave the  presidential Blue House
on Friday. “For now, Park is not leaving the Blue
House today,” Blue House spokesman Kim Dong Jo told Reuters. That
changed on Sunday, when Park Geun-hye, 65, who has become South
Korea’s first democratically elected leader to be forced from
office, left the official presidential Blue House residence on
Sunday in a motorcade of fast-driving black cars, flanked by police

And, like Friday, the former president who now faces life as a
private citizen and the possibility of prison time, was likewise
defiant upon arriving at her private home in the Gangnam district
of the capital, Seoul: “I feel sorry that I could not finish the
mandate given to me as president,” a spokesman for Park, member of
parliament Min Kyung-wook, quoted her as saying. “It will take
time, but I believe the truth will be revealed,” Park said in her
first public comments since her dismissal.

It was not the first time the former president has had to leave
the Blue House compound of traditional-style buildings at the foot
of a hill in Seoul.

In 1979, after a nine-day funeral following the assassination of
her father, the young Park left the Blue House with her siblings
for a family home. She had been acting first lady after her mother
was shot and killed in an earlier failed assassination attempt on
her father. Now, having lost presidential immunity, she could face
criminal charges over bribery, extortion and abuse of power in
connection with allegations of conspiring with her friend, Choi
Soon-sil. Both women denied wrongdoing.
