SEOUL - South Korean prosecutors sought on Monday to arrest former president Park Geun-hye to prevent any destruction of evidence in a corruption scandal that led to her impeachment.

Park has denied most of the criminal charges lodged against her, according to a statement from the special investigation headquarters of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office, which is leading the probe into the corruption scandal embroiling Park.

The Constitutional Court decided on March 10 to remove Park from office, making her the first South Korean president ousted by impeachment.
