World Samsung's heir receives two and a half year sentence

South Korea’s Seoul High Court sentenced Samsung Electronics vice chairman Jay Y. Lee to a two-and-a-half-year jail term, the court said on Monday (18).

Lee Jae-Yong, 52, was convicted of bribing an associate of former President Park Geun-hye and jailed in 2017, but the sentence was reduced and suspended on appeal. 

The Supreme Court then sent the case back to the Seoul High Court, which ruled today (18).
