Ex-South Chungcheong Province Governor An Hee-jung is not expected to appear in court for a hearing on Monday afternoon.
"We were informed that An is not appearing at a hearing to review his arrest warrant, but he wants to submit a written statement instead to plead his case," an official from Seoul Western District Prosecutors' Office said.
An accused of repeatedly raping and sexually assaulting his former secretary and a woman who works for a political think tank he set up. Prosecutors are seeking an arrest warrant for An after questioning him twice.
The court is expected to make its decision within this week.
