South Korea’s acting president says prosecutors need to end their investigation into impeached President Park Geun-Hye.
And they won’t be able to question her in person.
But did Hwang Kyo-ahn make this decision to help Park? Or to help himself?
He says it’s neither, that the investigation must end so that the country can move on.

So, what’s behind Hwang’s decision to suspend the corruption investigation?
