South Korea’s top court has upheld a 20-year jail sentence for former President Park Geun-hye over bribery and other crimes as it wrapped up a historic corruption case that marked a striking fall from grace for the country’s first female leader. Al Jazeera reports that the verdict on Thursday brought end to the legal process, clearing the way for a presidential pardon, which her supporters and at least one prominent member of President Moon Moon Jae-in’s Democratic Party have called for but which the president has thus far not directly addressed.
