Around a week ago, the South Korean ministry of justice announced that after considering the national credit risk, global economy, and other conditions, it has decided to release Samsung Lee Jae-yong on parole. However, Lee is expected to be released from prison on August 13.

Lee still can’t take over Samsung?

South Korean media report revealed that Lee won’t be able to return to his business post after his release because it is parole and not a pardon. Furthermore, he will be restricted from employment for the next five years and won’t be able to take over Samsung’s management affairs.

Back in 2016, Lee Jae-yong was involved in the bribery case of former South Korean President Park Geun-hye and was arrested on February 17, 2017. He was accused of bribing an organization controlled by Park Geun-hye’s close friend Choi Soon-sil to ensure support for the merger of Samsung’s two subsidiaries.
