SEOUL – A South Korean suing the former German chancellor Gerhard Schröder. The man holds the germans responsible for the fall apart of his marriage, message, state news agency Yonhap, on the basis of sources in court.
The 74-year-old Schröder and the 26-year-younger Kim So-yeon made in January their engagement known. The former husband of the woman accuses the duo an affair to have had. He demands 100 million won (about 77,000 euros) in compensation because of the “excruciating psychological pain” where he then was affected.
The husband also argues that the reputation damage suffered by assertions that ex-wife Kim, an interpreter, took part in a press conference. She said that years ago it was separated, while the marriage only in november last year, it was terminated. The court in Seoul handles the matter.
