South Korea Prosecutor Seeks Arrest Of Samsung Chief For Bribery

Oh come on, what's a few million between friends. I'm sure there is a rational explanation for the bribery charges...embezzlement allegations...perjury charges...and so on.

South Korea's special prosecutor on Monday sought a warrant to arrest the head of Samsung Group, the country's largest conglomerate, accusing him of paying multi-million dollar bribes to a friend of President Park Geun-hye. Investigators had grilled Samsung Group chief Jay Y. Lee for 22 straight hours last week as a suspect in a corruption scandal, which last month led to parliament impeaching Park.
