Lee Kun-hee, one of the most important person of Samsung company who was multiannual chairman of firm died a few months ago. However, due to his health problems, his activity on the mobile market ended faster. In 2014, his son Lee Jae-yong took over the management of Samsung. His presence in the company now stands in a question. Lee Jae-yong has just heard a sentence of 2.5 years in prison.
The case in court was about corruption. Lee Jae-yong allegedly committed embezzlement and bribery, which is confirmed by an investigation that stretches from 2017. In that year, the first sentence was handed down in the case of Lee Jae-yong, when he was sentenced to 2.5 years' suspended prison sentence. The new sentence resulted in Lee Jae-yong being arrested. Certainly, this decision will strongly affect Samsung's activity on the mobile market.
