Samsung President Park Geun-hye was impeached by Korean parliament for his role, leaving Jay Y. Lee as de facto leader.
A South Korean court said on Friday it approved a warrant to arrest Samsung Group chief Jay Y. Lee, who is under investigation for his alleged role in a corruption scandal that led parliament to impeach President Park Geun-hye.
The Seoul Central District Court also rejected a request to issue an arrest warrant for Samsung Electronics Co Ltd President Park Sang-jin, who also heads the Korea Equestrian Federation.
The special prosecutor’s office had on Tuesday requested the warrants for the two Samsung officials on bribery and other charges after its previous attempt to arrest Lee was blocked by a court last month.
