ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Disgraced South Korean leader Park Geun-hye said on Sunday (March 12) she feels sorry that she could not finish her mandate but said truth will be revealed in time. Park left the presidential Blue House earlier on Sunday, two days after the Constitutional Court dismissed her over a corruption scandal, facing life as a private citizen and the possibility of jail. Park struck a defiant tone upon arriving at her private home in the Gangnam district of the capital, Seoul, after leaving the Blue House compound in a motorcade of fast-driving black cars, flanked by police motorbikes. A spokesman for Park, member of parliament Min Kyung-wook, quoted her as saying that she appreciates her supporters. "I (former South Korean President Park Geun-hye) apologise I could not finish my mandate as a president... I take responsibility for the outcome of all of this. It will take time, but I believe truth will be revealed," Min Kyung-wook, quoted Park as saying.
