Lee, the third-generation leader of South Korea's massive Samsung Group and scion of the country's wealthiest family, home is now a 71-square-foot detention cell with a toilet in the corner behind a partition.

특검, 내일 오전 9시30분 이재용 뇌물공여 피의자로 소환 We begin with the ever widening probe into the influence-peddling scandal that may force President Park Geun-hye out of the top office. The independent counsel team is set to question Samsung Group leader Lee Jae-yong as a suspect on Thursday. Hwang Hojun files this report from the special prosecutors' office. Just a day after it announced the discovery of another tablet PC belonging to Choi Soon-sil -- and containing possible possible evidence against her -- the independent counsel team has announced another bombshell. "The independent counsel will summon Lee Jae-yong, the vice chairman of Samsung Electronics,... at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, to question him as a suspect on charges of bribery." Earlier this week, the special prosecutors team questioned two high-level executives from Samsung's Future Strategy Office, the conglomerate's control tower, likely as a prelude to summoning the de facto leader. Samsung Group allegedly signed a consulting contract in 2015 worth more than 18 million U.S. dollars with Core Sports, a company based in Germany owned by Choi Soon-sil herself. Part of the money was paid. The independent counsel team wants to question Vice chairman Lee over whether the funds were provided in exchange for her influence... to secure support for a controversial merger between two Samsung affiliates, Samsung C&T and Cheil Industries, in 2015. Choi is suspected of using her connection with President Park to pressure the state-run National Pension Service to support the merger. "The media spotlight will be right here at the independent counsel office on Thursday when Lee Jae-yong, the de facto leader of Samsung, takes this elevator to be questioned as a suspect. It's highly likely he'll assert that he and his company are the victims of blackmail and coercion by the Presidential office. Hwang Hojun, Arirang News."

Lee leaving STORYLINE Embattled Samsung Group Chairman Lee Kun-hee said on Tuesday that he will step down from his post at the top of South Korea's biggest conglomerate following his indictment on tax evasion charges. "I have decided to resign from the post of chairman," Lee told a news conference less than one week after he was indicted following a special independent counsel investigation into the conglomerate's operations. "We, including myself, have caused trouble for the nation with the special probe," Lee said. "I deeply apologise for that, and I'll take full responsibility for everything, both legally and morally." After Lee spoke, Vice Chairman Lee Hak-soo, considered the chairman's closest confidante, also announced his resignation as well as that of Lee Jae-yong, the chairman's son and heir who is an executive at Samsung Electronics Co. Special prosecutors on Thursday indicted Lee on charges of evading 112.8 (b) billion won (113 (m) million US dollars) in taxes, ending a three-month probe in the family-run conglomerate prompted by allegations of wrongdoing by a former Samsung lawyer. Prosecutors, however, dismissed the most explosive claim, that Samsung used affiliates to raise a slush fund to bribe influential South Koreans, saying there was no evidence. They also decided to indict Lee without arrest, saying his apprehension was too big a risk for South Korea, citing "the extremely competitive global economic situation." Samsung Group, founded 70 years ago by Lee's father, has interests in dozens of businesses including electronics, shipbuilding and construction. Its companies account for up to 20 percent of South Korea's exports, by some estimates. Samsung Electronics, its flagship corporation, is a world leader in computer chips, flat-screen TVs and mobile phones. Lee, widely seen as the driving force behind the rise of Samsung Electronics into a global technology force, hinted earlier this month that he might resign over the scandal following questioning by the special prosecutors. Besides Lee, nine other Samsung executives were indicted.
