SEOUL, March 30 (Xinhua) -- Former President Park Geun-hye of South Korea on Thursday appeared in a court in southern Seoul to stand before a judge who will decide whether to issue an arrest warrant sought by prosecutors, TV footage showed.

Park, dressed in a dark blue coat, got into a black sedan at her private residence in an upscale southern district of Seoul at about 10:09 a.m. local time (0109GMT).

The limousine arrived at the Seoul Central District Court around 11 minutes later. The motorcade was escorted by security cars and police motorcycles.

The grim-faced Park left no remarks, passing through a sea of reporters waiting for the first South Korean leader who participates in the hearing to decide the issuance of an arrest warrant.
