오늘 탄핵심판 4차 변론…이영선 행정관 등 4명 증인신문
Korea's Constitutional Court is holding its fourth hearing in its impeachment trial against President Park Geun-hye.
During the morning session, Presidential Security Office administrator Lee Young-sun was quizzed about his daily role at the top office.
He said his current main duty is to be one of the president's bodyguards, but he also has to take care of personal tasks such as picking up the president's clothes from local boutiques.
Despite repeated warnings from the justices, Lee refused to reveal how many times... if any... President Park's longtime confidante, Choi Soon-sil,... entered the presidential office of Cheong Wa Dae.
Lee also acknowledged he made calls and sent text messages using a borrowed phone -- not his work phone or a private phone in his name.
More details on President Park's whereabouts on the day of the 2014 Sewol-ho ferry disaster are expected this afternoon,... when Ryu Hee-in , a former member of a special investigative team on the Sewol-ho sinking is scheduled to appear in court.
We'll keep you updated on the developments throughout the day.
