SEOUL (Reuters) - Ousted South Korean leader Park Geun-hye is willing to cooperate with prosecutors who want to question her about a corruption scandal that led to her dismissal as president last week, the Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday.

When she was president, Park had said she would cooperate with prosecutors wanting to question her but she later declined.

State prosecutors are expected to notify Park on Wednesday of the date they want to summon her as a suspect.

Park denied wrongdoing. Her lawyer was not available for comment.
