Samsung boss’s ‘trial of the century’ set to start on March 9th South Korea to Witness

As it stated in Days later, Lee was indicted on bribery charges, among other things, and he’s going to face trial much sooner than expected.
Samsung’s Lee has paid more than $37 million to organizations run by Choi Soon-sil, a confidant of the president.
Only a few weeks ago, the apparent heir and de facto leader of the Samsung empire, Jay Y. Lee, was arrested.
Regardless of what happens to Lee following the trial, it’s likely that Samsung’s business won’t suffer, at least not immediately, though the massive conglomerate’s image might be further tarnished.
Lee is accused of having bribed companies and organizations that are tied to the South Korean president Park Geun-hye, who’s also being investigated at the moment.

Special prosecutor Park Young-soo said, “We are preparing hard, thinking that the upcoming Samsung trial could be the trial of the century that the entire world will be watching”.
Lee Jae-yong, Samsung’s chief, will face a trial in South Korea for bribery and embezzlement.
However, only time will show how vast the impact on Samsung’s image will be, and whether it will affect Samsung’s upcoming launches, namely the Galaxy S8.
Lee has been accused of bribing companies and firms that are associated with the South Korean President, Park Geun-hye, who is also currently under investigation.
The trial is expected to last for about three months, and will be a rather spectacle to witness, given the involvement of the big names.

Samsung has denied any wrongdoing throughout this investigation, and so have Park and Choi.
