Disgraced Army General Says He is Deeply Sorry amid Abuse Allegations

The military prosecution is investigating a four star general and his wife for the alleged abuse of enlisted soldiers stationed at their residence.
 
Army General Park Chan-ju appeared on Tuesday before the military prosecution as a suspect to face questions over the abuse allegations.
 
Park told reporters that he is deeply sorry to the public for causing such big trouble, saying he feels terrible.
 
On whether he will be discharged from the military, Park said he has not yet received any notice from the military. He said that he presented an application for discharge from military service in a bid to not appear like he’s clinging on to his post.
 
Park and his wife are accused of forcing the soldiers to do household chores, including laundry for their son and backyard farming, under inhumane conditions. 
 
The soldiers were said to have worn electronic bracelets to promptly respond to the couple's calls. One of the soldiers reportedly attempted suicide in 2015 due to stress from the extreme demands.
