Samsung chief in second grilling over corruption claims
Lee, the de facto head of the Samsung Group and vice chairman of Samsung Electronics Co, will be summoned Monday morning, along with two other executives including Samsung Electronics President Park Sang-jin, Lee Kyu-chul, a spokesman for the prosecutor's office, told reporters on Sunday. A special counsel is investigating the country's biggest political corruption scandal involving South Korea's president.
Lee was questioned with several other company executives in January, but prosecutors decided there were insufficient grounds for an arrest. Lee was first brought in for questioning a month ago, when the team grilled him for 22 hours straight.
The bribery accusations stem from an investigation that led prosecutors to claim Samsung spent over $36 million in 2015 to sway government sentiment surrounding a merger of Samsung affiliates Samsung C&T and Cheil Industries.
The 48-year-old is effectively in control of the conglomerate because his father, Samsung's ailing Chairman Lee Kun-hee, suffered a heart attack in 2014.
