President Park Geun-hye on Friday called for sterner punishment for crimes involving rich and influential people, such as stock price manipulation, saying that law enforcement should be carried out stringently so as to ensure that "crime does not pay."

"There have been many cases so far where those who commit crimes avoided punishment or got away with light punishment just because they are rich or influential. This has increased the people's frustration and distrust in our judicial system and worked against national unity," Park said during a home ministry policy briefing.

Park said the government should deal more sternly with crimes by those in "social leadership" positions, especially stock manipulation and embezzlement of company funds. She also said that ill-gotten gains from financial crimes must be fully traced and forfeited.
