|Lawyers for ousted South Korean president Park Geun-hye denied all the charges against her at a hearing Tuesday before she goes on trial.
Park Cheap Nike Air Max Dynasty , 65, was sacked by the country's top court in March over a wide-ranging corruption scandal and has been held in custody for more than a month.
She faces 18 criminal counts - five of bribery and 11 of abuse of power, plus one each of coercion and leaking government secrets.
"We deny all the charges," Park's top lawyer Yoo Young-ha told the Seoul Central District Court.
Park's attendance at the hearing was not mandatory and she stayed away from the court.
In South Korea, a preliminary hearing is to review the charges brought against a suspect and determine future proceedings.
Yoo said the defence had been overwhelmed by the prosecution's 120 Cheap Nike Air Max BW ,000 pages of investigation records and needed more time to go over them.
The court decided to hold another session next week and open full proceedings a week later.
The scandal centers on Park's longtime friend Choi Soon-sil, who is already on trial for corruption.
When indicting Park last month, prosecutors asserted that Park, in collusion with Choi, took or was promised bribes totalling 59.2 billion won ($52 million) from three South Korean companies Cheap Nike Air Max 98 , Samsung, Lotte and SK, in return for policy favors.
She has also been charged with coercing 18 large firms to "donate" a total of 77.4 billion won to two dubious foundations controlled by Choi.

CANBERRA, Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- Recent claims that one of Australia's "big four" banks turned a blind eye to suspected cases of money laundering have come at a terrible time for the banking sector, which was already battling a major public-relations problem with its image.
On Thursday last week Cheap Nike Air Max 2017 , it was revealed that Australia's financial intelligence agency, AUSTRAC, was investigating the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) for breaking anti-money laundering laws on 53,700 occasions, with many of those involving the bank's Intelligent Deposit Machines (IDMs).
AUSTRAC accused the bank of "serious and systemic non-compliance" of the laws Cheap Nike Air Max 1 , which it said led to tens of millions of dollars of drug and terror money being washed through the bank's systems.
Many of the shady deposits were made at the bank's IDMs, which failed to alert the bank of any suspicious activity. AUSTRAC has said that millions of dollars were deposited in these machines and were then immediately transferred overseas with no security checks.
On one occasion, more than 240,000 Australian dollars (188,000 U.S. dollars) was deposited manually into one Sydney account over just three days Cheap Nike Air Max Typha , while it was also revealed staff at a Perth branch of the bank tried to warn superiors about the suspicious deposits but got no satisfactory response.
Each breach of the law carries a potential fine of up to 18 million Australian dollars (14.2 million U.S. dollars), leaving the CBA with a massive potential payout that would likely lead to top-level sackings, and a falling share price.
In addition to AUSTRAC's investigations, on Friday the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) said it too would investigate the CBA's handling of its IDMs, saying they had "commenced inquiries" into the matter.
The scandal has even prompted Treasurer Scott Morrison to turn up the heat on the "incredibly serious" and "very troubling" practices occurring at one of Australia's biggest banks.
And in news which only served to disenfranchise the public further Cheap Nike Air Max Thea , the CBA on Wednesday announced a record annual cash profit, totalling 9.88 billion Australian dollars (7.76 billion U.S. dollars), a 4.6 percent increase on the previous year.
This isn't the first time the major banks have had to fend off public and government discontent. Banks have been accused in the past of colluding in refusing to pass on interest rate cuts set by the Reserve Bank while awarding significant bonuses to senior executives.
Australia's banks are also among the richest in the world, generating an annual income the equivalent of 2.9 percent GDP. By contrast, the United States' banks generate the equivalent of just 1.2 percent GDP.
Debate has raged for months as to whether the sector should be the subject of a wide-ranging Royal Commission Cheap Nike Air Max Tavas , a move strongly supported by the Labor-led Opposition, to ensure that banks aren't excessively profiteering at the expense of customer service.
While this latest scandal strengthens claims for a Royal Commission, Morrison who was scathing of the bank's conduct on Wednesday, talked down the likelihood of one taking place.
"I think it is an epic fail and I think it's incredibly serious," he said. "At the end of the day ... the Commonwealth Bank and particularly (its) board (has) to assure the public about their confidence in that bank."
