S.Korea's top court to rule on Samsung heir's bribery case on Aug.29 - YTN

SEOUL, Aug 22 (Reuters) - South Korea's Supreme Court will deliver a ruling on the bribery conviction of Samsung Group heir Jay Y. Lee on Aug. 29 in a corruption scandal that led to the ouster of the country's then-president in 2017, broadcaster YTN said on Friday.

In February 2018, the 51-year old Samsung Electronics Co Ltd vice chairman was released after an appeals court gave him a suspended jail sentence on charges of bribery, embezzlement and others. Both Lee and state prosecutors appealed to the Supreme Court. (Reporting by Heekyong Yang and Hyunjoo Jin; editing by Christian Schmollinger)
