South Korea mulls arresting Samsung execs

arrestThe political scandal threatening South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye is hotting up with coppers wondering if they should arrest two Samsung executives.

South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported that the prosecution would seek to arrest two Samsung executives.

However, the prosecutors’ office later said that pair, Samsung Group Vice Chairman Choi Gee-sung and President Chang Choong-ki, both of whom were summoned for questioning on Monday, were considered witnesses.

The two were questioned by investigators looking into whether the country’s top conglomerate paid bribes to get the country’s national pension fund to approve a controversial merger between two Samsung affiliates.

Park could become Korea’s first democratically elected leader to leave office early after parliament voted to impeach her in December over the corruption scandal. The decision must be approved or overturned by the Constitutional Court.
