Court turns down request to arrest Woo Byung-woo, denies involvement in Choi Soon-sil scandal

The investigation team is pursuing Woo Byung-woo, Park Geun-hye's former senior secretary for civil affairs, and investigating whether he obstructed an investigation into the deadly sinking of the Sewol ferry in 2014 for Park Geun-hye's political benefit.

Woo Byung-woo denied any involvement in the scandal at a court hearing after a 19-hour questioning session.  Park Young-soo of the investigation team asked the court to issue an arrest warrant against Woo Byung-woo but the Seoul Central District Court turned down the request stating the allegations against him are debatable.

He flatly denied involvement in the scandal and said that he did not know who Choi Soon-sil was until after the scandal broke out.  Meanwhile, the deadline of the investigation is next week on Feb. 28.
