South Korean prosecutors say they intend to raid the presidential Blue House despite President Park Geun-Hye's office said the impeachment has no legal foundation.

A spokesman of independent prosecutors team, Lee Kyu-Chul, said the raid is necessary. Park's office has objected to any raid on Blue House as citing a criminal code that bans action on state facilities deemed to be militarily important, and it also denied allegations about ordered S. Korea's intelligence agency to spy on judges.
