South Korean President apologizes for scandals
Seoul: South Korean President Lee Myung-bak offered a public apology Tuesday for a series of corruption scandals implicating his brother and former aides, an embarrassment for the administration he once called "morally perfect".
"It is all my fault," the sombre-faced Lee said in an official statement. "I will readily accept any criticism."
The apology came as his elder brother Lee Sang-deuk and a handful of his former aides are facing an array of corruption charges. Some of them have been already jailed, while the investigations are still under way, reported Xinhua.
