      Ex-President Park Geun-hye's toxic confidante Choi Soon-sil had stitches on her forehead after falling in a prison recently.

      According to the Justice Ministry on Thursday, Choi fell in the locker room of a prison shower in eastern Seoul on June 4 and suffered a 5 cm laceration on her forehead. She was treated in a nearby hospital.

      "Her wound is being tended to in the prison infirmary and she is not suffering any debilitating side effects," a ministry official said.

      Choi is serving 20 years for colluding with Park to extort tens of billions of won from big businesses and other corruption and influence-peddling charges. She awaits the outcome of an appeal.
