Ex-South Chungcheong Province Governor An Hee-jung on Monday appeared for a second day of questioning on rape charges at the Seoul Western District Prosecutors' Office.
His former secretary Kim Ji-Eun first accused him two weeks ago of repeatedly raping and sexually assaulting her, and another woman who works for a political think tank he set up has also since come forward.
An denies force and claims the sex seemed consensual to him. "But the accusers said we didn't. I apologize for it. I will faithfully cooperate with the investigation and accept the punishment if I'm found guilty."
An previously appeared at the prosecutors' office on March 9 and was questioned for nine hours.
