Nearly 400 packs of the drug “Viagra” were purchased in South Korea. They were intended for the employees of the President’s  Park Geun-hye administration. According to the Korean government, this drug is used by them against the symptoms of alpine illness during business trips.

The tablets were purchased in the last year, but so far none of them are used.

It was assumed that medical drugs will be applied by the employees of the administration during their visits to Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda.

The Press secretary of South Korean President said that the doctors often prescribe Viagra to the climbers. These tablets help the mountaineers to cope with the high altitude hypoxia.

Another scandal

This controversial incident occurred after another scandal, which concerns Park Geun-hye. The fact is that a close friend of President was charged with corruption. In the opinion of the Prosecutor’s Office investigators, Choi Soon Sil interfered in the affairs of state in order to obtain personal benefit. According to the law enforcement agencies report, more than 60 million dollars were transferred to a personal Fund of President’s friend.
