Former President Park Geun-hye said about her impeachment, “The truth will surely come out with time.” He also described the trial process as “a culinary act for the sake of a set conclusion.” He argued that both the impeachment and trial were unfair.
During his imprisonment, Park published a book

According to the JoongAng Ilbo report, in this book, Park mentioned the impeachment process and the unfairness of the trial several times. Regarding his impeachment, Park wrote, “A lie can deceive the world by blinding people’s eyes and closing their ears for a while, but over time, the truth will surely come out.”
Regarding the trial process, he said, “The reason I endured the murderous trial schedule, which is conducted four times a week, despite all the humiliation, was because of my belief that the judiciary would be on the side of the truth.” Seeing the issuance of an additional arrest warrant for reasons that do not make sense otherwise, I came to the conclusion that it was a ceremonial act for the sake of a fixed conclusion.” He continued, “I thought that it was meaningless to attend a trial conducted by such a court any longer, and I expressed my intention to my lawyers,” he wrote.
To a letter from a supporter who argued that the result was unfair after the first trial, he replied, “Even if it is formally legal, if there is no practical justification, it cannot be called the rule of law.”
Regarding the controversy over ‘Seven Hours of Sewol’, he said, “I was not feeling well that day, so I received a report from the official residence. There were bizarre rumors and malicious plots about me related to the situation at the time when the Sewol Ferry sank, but I was silent because I believed in the power of truth.” “There was nothing to hide, and there was no reason to hide it. I think that as time passes, what is the truth will be revealed.”
There was no direct remark to the presidential candidate Yoon Seok-yeol, who investigated him. However, it contains content that criticizes former Justice Minister Cho Kuk for a letter sent by a supporter to the effect that “I am confused as to why Yoon Seok-yeol, the object of hatred, is attacking the country.” Park said, “I am well aware of the story related to Minister Cho’s hearing, as many people have sent me relevant news. He continued, “A lie can fool people for a while, and even some people, but it cannot fool everyone forever. I don’t think I can take it.”
