    Fokus: Sør-Korea

    Som om ikke katastrofen med Samsungs Galaxy Note 7 skulle være nok, så er det nå store protester i Sør-Korea etter en ny 'eksplosiv' avsløring, som hevder at President Park Geun-hye har blitt kontrollert av nær bekjent når det kommer til politiske avgjørelser.

    South Korea’s presidency ‘on the brink of collapse’ as scandal grows

    TOKYO — South Korea’s president is engulfed in a political scandal with plotlines straight out of a soap opera: rumors of secret advisers, nepotism and ill-gotten gains, plus a whiff of sex. There’s even a Korean Rasputin and talk of a mysterious clique called the “eight fairies.”


    Park Geun-hye, South Korea’s first female president and daughter of the military dictator who turned the country into an industrial powerhouse, is facing the biggest challenge of her turbulent tenure.


    The essence of the scandal is this: It has emerged that Park, notoriously aloof even to her top aides, has been taking private counsel from Choi Soon-sil, a woman she’s known for four decades. Despite having no official position and no security clearance, Choi seems to have advised Park on everything from her wardrobe to speeches about the dream of reunification with North Korea.


    Calls for her resignation — and even impeachment — are resonating from across the political spectrum, and her approval ratings have dropped to a record low of 17 percent, according to two polls released Friday.


    On Friday, Park directed all of her top advisers to resign en masse, with her spokesman saying a reshuffle would take place, the Yonhap news agency reported. Kim Jae-won, senior presidential secretary for political affairs, told a parliamentary session that Park’s chief of staff had already stepped down.

      Etter sterkt politisk press fra Trump og hans administrasjon har Sør-Korea signert en kontrakt med Lockheed Martin på kjøp av 12 nye Seahawk helikoptre.

      Sør-Korea kjøpte i 2016 8 nye Leonardo AW159 helikoptre fra fabrikken i Yeovil og ønsket nå å kjøpe ytterligere 12 nye helikoptre av samme type, men denne handelen ble stoppet av USA på tross av at Wildcat helikoptrene kom mye gunstigere ut i pris enn de amerikanske Seahawk helikoptrene.

      Pristilbudet fra Leonardo på 12 nye AW159 Wildcat helikoptre var på 580 mill Dollar mens tilbudet fra Lockheed Martin på 12 nye Seahawk helikoptre var på 850 mill Dollar, dvs. en forskjell 270 mill. Dollar.

      Kontrakten med Sør-Korea ville ha vært kjærkommen for de mange arbeidsplassene på fabrikken i Yeovil, en kontrakt som det nå ikke blir noe av.
