South Korea: Samsung bigwig on bribery charge
Wednesday 1st March 2017
SOUTH KOREAN prosecutors charged Samsung’s vice-chairman with bribery, embezzlement and other crimes yesterday linked to the scandal surrounding disgraced President Park Geun Hye.
Mr Lee, who was arrested on February 17, also allegedly hid assets overseas, concealed proceeds from criminal activities and committed perjury.
He is the biggest name yet to be charged over allegations that the suspended president’s confidante dictated government policy and wrung tens of millions in bogus charity donations from corporate giants.
It follows a three-month probe by a prosecution team that ended yesterday after the country’s acting leader, Prime Minister Hwang Kyo Ahn, refused a request for an extension.
Prosecutors also said they planned to indict four more top Samsung executives, key figures at the powerful yet secretive Samsung corporate strategy office, which wielded influence over dozens of subsidiaries and allegedly orchestrated the payments to Ms Choi.
Mr Lee promised in December to disband the office staffed by family cronies who helped ensure the transition of power.
Shortly after the announcement, Samsung said the four would resign from their jobs and leave the electronics giant.
But it did not mention Mr Lee, implying the Samsung heir would keep his job and a seat on the Samsung Electronics board while he faces trial.

WORKERS at the South Korean broadcaster MBC go on strike from Monday joining 1,130 KBS producers who stopped working on Thursday. They are calling for the network’s top management to step down for allegedly influencing news coverage to be in favour of former president Park Geun Hye’s administration. Among the allegations are that MBC workers were forced to cut scenes of Sewol ferry disaster victims’ families sobbing: here.
EX-PRESIDENT Park Geun Hye’s confidante Choi Soon Sil was jailed today for 20 years for bribery, abuse of power and other crimes. Seoul’s Central District Court also sentenced the chairman of the Lotte Group, South Korea’s fifth-largest conglomerate, to two-and-a-half years in prison for bribery in the same case: here.
