Blogger Arrested

A South Korean blogger has been arrested accused of spreading false economic information via the internet. The very idea!

Known as "Minerva" - the Greek goddess of wisdom - he gained cult status after predicting the collapse of the global economy, including the demise of Lehman Bros, and the crash of the Korean won.

The judge at the hearing in Seoul Central District Court that issued a warrant for his arrest, said that Minerva's (real name Park) writings "affected foreign exchange markets and the nation's credibility."

If convicted Park faces up to seven years in prison.

Shortly before his court appearance Park said that Elvis used to work for Cargill but now drives a taxi, and that Spurs will win the Premier League this season with their unique brand of cultured attacking football.
