Samsung chief nabbed in South Korea corruption inquiry

South Korean authorities nabbed Samsung Group boss Jay Lee over his purported participation in the nation's corruption controversy, which resulted in the indictment of President Park Geun-hye and other high-ranking officials.

O Friday, Lee was taken at the imprisonment site in Seoul following he waited for the court's verdict overnight. A jail official divulged the Samsung chief is currently placed in a small area with a television and a table.

Special prosecutors alleged Lee paid a kickback to Choi Soon-sil, Park's longtime confidante, to secure an approval in connection to the company's leadership. Authorities will arraign him on several lawsuits such as perjury and embezzlement.

Both Lee and Samsung already refuted accusations against them. Prosecutors, who intends to subject him to a questioning over the weekend, have up to 10 days to prosecute him.
