Ousted South Korean President Park Geun-hye appeared on Tuesday in the prosecutors' office to be questioned over an corruption scandal that led to her impeachment earlier this month.

Park said in front of cameras at the Seoul District Prosecutors' Office, that she was sorry to people, vowing to face an interrogation faithfully, TV footage showed, Xinhua reported.

Just leaving the brief message to the public, Park entered the prosecutors' office in southern Seoul.

Park, dressed in a dark blue coat, walked out of her private home in the southern district of Seoul at about 9:17 a.m. local time (0017 GMT), getting in a black sedan and saying nothing to hundreds of supporters outside her home.

The motorcade, carrying Park and security guards, arrived in the office just minutes later.

Park will be interrogated by state prosecutors for her alleged involvement in the scandal, which removed her from office after the impeachment was passed in the parliament on Dec. 9. The constitutional court upheld the motion on March 10.

Park became the fourth South Korean former president to be grilled by prosecutors.
