Samsung heir gets 2.5 yrs in prison for bribery

Samsung Electronics Co. Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong closes his eyes after arriving at the Seoul High Court on Jan. 18, 2021, to attend a sentencing hearing over a bribery scandal. Lee was sentenced to two years and six months in prison over bribes to former President Park Geun-hye and her longtime friend, Choi Soon-sil, and taken into custody immediately after the ruling. In August 2019, the Supreme Court ordered the appellate court to review its suspended jail sentence for Lee over the scandal. (Yonhap)
