Samsung’s “leader” Li Zairong today (25) decided to accept the retrial verdict of the “cronies interfering in politics” case and not appeal.
It is understood that today is the last day of the legal time limit for appeal. If the prosecution does not appeal, then Li’s sentence will maintain the retrial judgment. Li’s lawyer said, “he has decided to accept the judgment with an open mind and not appeal any more.”

On February 18, South Korea’s Seoul high court sentenced Lee Jae Jung, President of Samsung Electronics, to two years and six months’ imprisonment Li Zairong was detained in court.
