Danish Authorities Uphold Prosecutor’s Decision to Extradite Chung Yoo-ra Back to South Korea

It looks like Chung Yoo-ra is running out of legal options in Denmark:

A Danish court on Wednesday upheld prosecutors’ decision to extradite Chung Yoo-ra, the daughter of impeached former President Park Geun-hye’s friend at the center of a bribery scandal.

But it remains uncertain whether or when Chung will be extradited to Seoul, as she appealed again to a higher court.

Last month, the local prosecutors’ office decided to send Chung, the only daughter of Choi Soon-sil, back to Korea to face an investigation. But she filed an appeal.  [Joong Ang Ilbo]

With former President Park impeached and sitting in jail, Chung Yoo-ra is basically just a side show now.
