Ousted South Korean leader Park Geun-Hye was assailed by newspapers and politicians Monday for her defiance over the court ruling that ended her tenure as president.Park left Seoul's presidential complex on Sunday, two days after the Constitutional Court upheld her impeachment by parliament and stripped her of executive power and privileges.A new presidential election must be held by early May, and opposition politicians urged Park's investigation."To the last, Park did not say a single word of apology and only talked of the so-called truth in apparent disobedience of the ruling," said Choo Mi-Ae, leader of the main liberal opposition Democratic Party (DP). She call for a "swift and resolute" investigation into Park and "stern punishment" if she was found guilty. As president, Park repeatedly refused to make herself available for questioning, but has now been stripped of the executive privilege that gave her immunity from prosecution.
