South Korea’s President Under Fire For Purchase Of 360 Viagra Pills

Viagra Pills

The office of South Korean President Park Geun-Hye has been forced to explain a mass purchase of Viagra, a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction or impotence in men.

It was revealed on Tuesday by an opposition party lawmaker that Park’s office bought hundreds of Viagra pills and the generic version of the drug.

As the revelation sparked a media frenzy, Park’s spokesman said the drug was purchased to ease possible mountain sickness during the leader’s visit to high-altitude African nations including Ethiopia in May.

We bought it for the trip but did not use it,” Jung Youn-Kuk told reporters.

He added that the drug is known to be effective in treating altitude sickness.

Jung also came to the presidency’s defence after revelations were made of Park’s office buying hundreds of inject-able doses of human placenta extract and vitamin shots—commonly used for detoxification and anti-ageing treatment.

He said the doses were bought for workers at the presidential office including Park’s bodyguards.

Prosecutors are investigating whether Park also had various injections prescribed for herself using the name of her close friend Choi Soon-Sil, at private clinics, without the knowledge of the official presidential medical staff.

Choi is the daughter of late founder of the Yongsaegyo (“Church of Eternity”) cult-like religious group, Choi Tae-min.

In a scandal which has engulfed the presidency, Park and Choi are accused of conspiring to force local firms to donate tens of millions of dollars to dubious non-profit foundations controlled by Choi.

Choi allegedly used some of the money for personal gain. Park is also accused of letting Choi meddle in state affairs to the extent of nominating top officials and editing her speeches.

Park faces a criminal probe by prosecutors and a growing push for her impeachment.
