A former top court judge of South Korea, indicted for his suspected role in a judiciary power abuse scandal during the conservative Park Geun-hye administration, was found not guilty on January 13.

The Seoul Central District Court found former Supreme Court senior judge Yoo Hae-yong not guilty of colluding in the power abuse scandal to help report the proceedings of a certain case to the presidential office.

The ruling is the first to be handed down in relation to the judiciary power abuse scandal that saw a Supreme Court chief justice indicted and detained for the first time in South Korea’s judicial history.
