Samsung's Lee Jae Yong arrested on bribery charges

Recap: 01/19/17 Court dismisses arrest warrant for Samsung's CEO, Lee Jae Yong released from detention

Lee Jae Yong was arrested early on Feb. 17 on charges that include bribery in connection with the corruption scandal surrounding Park Geun Hye and Choi Soon Sil.  Prosecutors suspect that Lee Jae Yong gave approximately $36.3 million USD worth of bribes to Choi Soon Sil in return for the government's backing of a merger of two Samsung affiliates.

The investigation counsel has also requested an extension of their investigation.  They were initially given 70 days and they only have 12 days left until the Feb. 28 deadline.  The investigation can be extended for a month with the consent of the acting President and Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn.

1. [+27,931, -1432] Awesome !!!

2. [+27,383, -1734] Judge Han Jung-suk, you're great.  Without a doubt, you've made a good choice and someday your decision will be the stepping stone for a better and cleaner world.  With this, Park Geun Hye's pretty much done for bribery charges and they can't deny a thorough investigation and a search of the Blue House anymore.  Let's push through with it again, fighting to the investigation counsel!!

3. [+21,907, -913] Woo Byung-woo, the secretaries, and those members involved plus one more left to be caught.

6. [+6853, -353] Judge Han Jung-suk, your supporter isn't Samsung, the 45 million citizens are here to back you up.  Furthermore, your courage and righteous judgment will be of value to our future generations.  You've worked hard and I thank you.  Following this, impeachment is pretty much 100% confirmed and also I'm anticipating for at least more than 10 years of imprisonment.

7. [+6573, -309] Justice is still alive!  Thank you investigation counsel!!

8. [+6189, -285] Judge Han Jung-suk, thank you!  Hope the investigation counsel gets approved an extension and fighting to the team!
