    More than 1,000 die-hard supporters of disgraced ex-President Park Geun-hye have petitioned an appeals court to parole or release her.

    Park faces an appeal brought by prosecutors against her 24-year sentence for corruption and abuse of office, which they consider too lenient.

    She is separately on trial on more corruption charges.

    The petitions were initiated by a group of die-hard supporters who run a YouTube channel called "Falsehood and Truth" where they peddle conspiracy theories.

    The group claims petitioners include former senior Cheong Wa Dae officials and even members of the hard-left Korean Confederation of Trade Unions and the Korean Teachers and Education Workers Union.
