South Korean prosecutors said Sunday that President Park Geun-hye had a role in an influence-peddling case, prompting rivals to call for her impeachment.

While the observations by the investigators provided fresh ammunition to an opposition that’s been clamoring for her resignation, Moon Jae-in, a top contender for president in opinion polls and the former leader of the main opposition Democratic Party of Korea, said there’s a strong case for impeachment.
