SEOUL (Reuters) – A South Korean appeals court will rule on Monday on Samsung Group scion Jay Y. Lee’s conviction and jail term for corruption in a case that led to the ouster of the nation’s president last year.

Seoul High Court is due to decide the fate of the 49-year-old Samsung Electronics vice chairman, who has been detained for a year on charges arising from a scandal that shone a light on cozy ties between family-run conglomerates and political powers, as well as bringing down President Park Geun-hye.

It is a scandal South Korea would like to put behind it days before it hosts the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. We’re sorry. You don't have permission to access this page. Please sign up to have full access to this page.
