Al Jazeera

As we walked the last couple of kilometres to the Constitutional Court, the extraordinary nature of this day was clear from the start. The streets around it were cordoned off with more police buses I can remember seeing in a concentrated area in Seoul – and that's saying something for a police force that knows how to precision park buses by the score. The sound of President Park Geun-hye's supporters several streets away boomed in the background. The question was - would they do it? Would the constitutional court judges remove a sitting president for the first time in South Korea's young democratic history?

FILE - In this Nov. 29, 2016 file photo, then South Korean President Park Geun-hye bows during her address to the nation at the presidential Blue House in Seoul, South Korea. The arrest of South Korea's first female president marks a stunning fall for the scion of a powerful general who himself ruled the country during her teenage years and into her 20s. Park was jailed Friday, March 31, 2017, three weeks after the Constitutional Court stripped her of office over a corruption scandal. Prosecutors accuse her of colluding with a jailed confidante to amass an illicit fortune and allowing the friend to manipulate state affairs.
