Samsung clamp authority Jay Y. Lee sent behind to jail in temptation case

Samsung Electronics clamp authority Jay Y. Lee is behind in jail following a retrial of his 2017 self-assurance in a temptation box that helped lead to a rain of former South Korean boss Park Guen-hye. The Seoul High Court condemned Lee to 30 months on Monday.

Lee was creatively convicted of temptation in 2017 and condemned to 5 years, though was expelled in 2018 after a judgment was reduced and dangling on appeal. In Aug 2019, however, South Korea’s Supreme Court overturned a appeals court, statute that it was too lenient, and systematic a box to be retried.

Lee was approaching to turn authority of Samsung after a genocide of his father, Lee Kun-hee, in Oct 2020. He has served as a chaebol’s de facto personality given his father suffered a cadence in 2014. With Lee’s sentencing today, it is misleading who will take over his responsibilities during Samsung.

Charges opposite Lee enclosed bribing Park to benefit support for deals that would have helped Lee get control of Samsung from his father. The bootleg payments played a vital purpose in a crime liaison that led to Park’s impeachment, detain and 25-year jail sentence.


The temptation box is apart from another one Lee is concerned in, over purported accounting rascal and batch manipulation. Hearings in that box begun in October.
