Suspended IOC member gets presidential amnesty

2/8/2007

SEOUL, South Korea -- Suspended International Olympic
Committee member Park Yong-sung was among 434 South Koreans granted
presidential amnesty Thursday.

Park, the former chairman of the Doosan Group, was suspended
from the IOC last year after he was sentenced to a suspended prison
term and fined on embezzlement charges in a case stemming from a
family feud over control of South Korea's oldest conglomerate.
