Both sides appeal billionair­e Samsung heir's sentence


The sheer size of Samsung in South Korea has long divided public opinion in the country and that continues as the heir apparent appeals his five-year prison sentence for bribery. Jay Y Lee, the founder's grandson, will this month begin legal arguments against his conviction as he continues to profess innocence. Prosecutor­s will line up on the other side as they push to lock him up for a term closer to the 12 years they sought at trial, cheered on by politician­s and critics of South Korea's biggest chaebol.
