PROSECUTOR’S SECOND ATTEMPT
Warrants sought for the arrest of Samsung bosses
The graft probe into Samsung Group chief Jay Y Lee may topple President Park Geun-hye
Seoul — South Korea’s special prosecutor’s office said on Tuesday it would again seek a warrant to arrest Samsung Group chief Jay Y Lee, a suspect in a graft investigation that may topple President Park Geun-hye. Lee, the third-generation leader of the country’s top conglomerate, was questioned for more than 15 hours by the special prosecutor’s office on Monday. The prosecutor also seeks the arrest of Samsung Electronics executive Park Sang-jin. "We have filed for an arrest warrant for vice-chairman Lee Jae-yong and president Park Sang-jin today," the prosecution office said, referring to the 48-year-old Samsung chief by his Korean name.
