Park has been engulfed by a scandal that centers on Choi Soon-Sil, who is accused of using her personal ties with the president to coerce local firms to donate millions of dollars to non-profit foundations Choi then used for personal gain.Ahn Bong-Geun and Lee Jae-Man, who served as Park's key advisers until last month, are accused of helping Choi to visit the presidential office.The two, who served as Park's aides for decades, were described by local media as "doorknobs" to the president who wielded enormous power over policymaking.Many argue the sitting president can be investigated by prosecutors and then charged after leaving office.
