REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(Seoul, South Korea) Park's questioning by Korea government prosecutors appears to be effort by government to show cooperation with United States probe, as earlier affirmed by South Korean foreign minister Park says he's shocked by indictment, and doubts he could get fair trial. [PARK - has no intention of returning to United States at present. Basis on which he would cooperate hasn't changed. Denies relationship with House speaker Tip O'Neill was anything but social.] Despite Park's self assurance, South Korean government doesn't want to jeopardize relations with United States, so government- to-government arrangement may take case out of his control.
