Detention of former South Korean President Park Geun-hye to be challenged


Rodney Dixon KC has been instructed as international counsel for the impeached President Park Geun-hye of South Korea, currently on trial in Seoul on eighteen charges of corruption, bribery and abuse of power.

Family, close associates and supporters wish all steps to be taken internationally to challenge her detention, particularly in light of her deteriorating health condition. Dr Mishana Hosseinioun, President of MH Group, acting for these parties, has instructed Rodney Dixon KC to launch urgent proceedings before the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention in Geneva and other UN bodies to protect the former President’s rights and safeguard her well-being. The team is closely monitoring the trial proceedings in Seoul to place all relevant information before the UN ‘special procedures’ bodies, and to highlight the prior impeachment proceedings and conditions of detention ahead of the Universal Periodic Review of the Republic of Korea, where the country’s human rights record will be under review.
