SEOUL - South Korean prosecutors said on Wednesday (April 11) that former president Park Geun Hye had unfairly dodged some bribery charges in her trial and they appealed against her jailing for only 24 years, after they had demanded a 30-year sentence, media reported.
Park was sentenced last Friday at the conclusion of the country's most momentous graft trial in years, which exposed webs of corruption between political leaders and some of its biggest conglomerates.
"The Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office said it finds part of the ruling clearing Park of some of the bribery charges against her unfair," the Yonhap news agency reported.
The office was not immediately available for comment.
Park, the daughter of a former military dictator who became South Korea's first democratically elected leader in 2012, had pleaded not guilty.
