Suicide: Former South Korea President Roh Moo-hyun is believed to have jumped to his death in the mountains near his home

'I'm indebted to too many people. Too many people are suffering because of me,' 62-year-old Roh wrote in the note left on his computer.

'Don't be sorry. Don't blame anybody. It's destiny.'

Lamentable and deeply sad: South Korea President Lee Myung-bak

A self-taught lawyer who lifted himself out of poverty to reach the nation's highest office in 2003, Roh had prided himself on being a clean politician in a country with a long history of corruption.

His hard-won reputation as a corruption-fighter was tarnished by allegations that he accepted 3.7million pounds in bribes from a Korean businessman.

He had acknowledged that local shoe manufacturer Park Yeon-cha gave money to his wife but suggested it was not a bribe. He also knew of a payment to another relative but said he thought it was an investment.

Prosecutors suspect the 3.7million pounds found its way to Roh.

His suicide stunned the nation. Supporters flooded his website with condolences. President Lee Myung-bak said Roh's 'sad and tragic' death was 'truly hard to believe'.
