Former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder 'sued for affair' in South Korea



A South Korean man is suing former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder for allegedly having an affair with his ex-wife, reports say.

 
Mr Schroeder is set to marry the woman, South Korean translator Kim So-yeon, who will be his fifth wife.


But Yonhap news agency says her former husband believes they had a liaison while she was still married to him.


In South Korea, extramarital affairs were a criminal offence until 2015, and remain grounds for civil litigation.


The husband is seeking 100m won (£68,000; $94,000) for "unbearable mental distress", Yonhap adds.
