South Korea’s former leader Park Geun-hye arrived at a Seoul court on Tuesday to stand trial on bribery charges over a corruption scandal that brought down her presidency.

Park faces more than 10 years in jail if found guilty of taking bribes from business leaders, one of the key accusations that led to her impeachment, making her the country’s first democratically elected leader to be removed from office.

Park has denied any wrongdoing and is expected to plead not guilty at the trial.

In her first public appearance since she was arrested in March, Park arrived at court in a blue correctional services van about an hour before proceedings were due to start at 0100 GMT.
