Samsung heir sentenced to five years in jail

Lee Jae-yong, the chairman of Samsung, has just been sentenced to five years in prison for crimes. The billionaire, South Korea’s third-richest man and heir to the Samsung empire, had been accused of making large donations to foundations in return for political favors from the president.

Lee’s lawyers said they do not agree with the verdict. Lee’s case could end up being decided by the country’s supreme court next year. Four other top Samsung executives were also convicted and received sentences of up to four years.
