According to Yonhap on February 16, according to the South Korean judiciary on the 16th, Samsung Electronics Vice President Lee Jae-yu was transferred to an ordinary prison on the 15th after completing the four-week epidemic isolation in Seoul Detention Center, and can receive visits from outside personnel from tomorrow.
According to the report, South Korea’s financial circles believe that considering that Lee Jae-ye can meet visitors such as lawyers and relatives in prison from the 17th, Samsung Electronics’ major business decisions may be further accelerated.
At present, the company’s top priorities for decision-making are the third production line of Pingze Semiconductor Plant and whether to build a wafer foundry in the United States.
On the 18th of last month, Li Zaiyue was sentenced to two years and six months in prison for his cronies in politics and was arrested in court.
Because Lee Jae was detained in the detention center for about one year after his arrest in February 2017, the remaining sentence is one year and six months.
He will be released from prison in July next year.
