S. Korean prosecutors seek 2nd arrest warrant of Samsung heir
SEOUL (PNA/Xinhua) – South Korean prosecutors independently investigating the scandal involving impeached President Park Geunhye on Tuesday sought their second arrest warrant of the heir apparent of Samsung Group, the country's biggest family-controlled conglomerate. The arrest warrant for Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong was requested, the independent counsel team said. A Seoul court is forecast to determine its validity on Thursday night or early Friday. The special prosecutors, who launched investigation into the presidential scandal on Dec. 21 last year, sought their first warrant on Jan. 16 that was rejected by the court three days later for lack of evidence.
