SEOUL, March 14 (Xinhua) -- South Korean prosecutors plan to summon ousted President Park Geun-hye over the corruption scandal that led to her impeachment, according to local media reports on Tuesday.

Park will be notified on Wednesday of when she will be summoned, an unnamed official of a special investigation team was quoted as saying.

The team, which has reviewed the corruption scandal since last week, will summon Park as a criminal suspect.

The constitutional court unanimously upheld the motion to impeach Park on Friday. Park became the first South Korean leader to be ousted through impeachment.

Park left the presidential Blue House on Sunday night for her private home in southern district of Seoul.

Special prosecutors had independently investigated the scandal embroiling Park and her longtime confidante Choi Soon-sil by the end of February. Since then, state prosecutors had reviewed the case.

Prosecutors have identified Park as an accomplice to Choi for multiple charges including bribery.
