This just confirms the view that politics is rotton with curruption.

She originally got 34 years in total (one 26 another 8 year sentence).

Somehow that got lowered to 20years.The incoming president just waves his magic wand and releases her. Thats curruption added upon curuption. Recently the incoming president who was actually part of the stste prosecution team that convicted her was saying he hoped to meet her for a nice chat.

Meanwhile others less powerful (her father was a dictator) remain in prison.

Is this the best example of an alternative to North Korea?

Sorry, I meant to mention she only did 5 years of her 20 year sentence.
