South Korean Court Arrests Sabotaging Samsung Employee
South Korean Court Arrests Sabotaging Samsung Employee. A court in South Korea issued an arrest warrant for an employee of Samsung with a senior position due to possible sabotage of employees at trade unions.
The employee of Samsung is arrested because he has destroyed possible evidence in the case, writes Reuters news agency.
The prosecutors are investigating whether Samsung has stopped its employees in their efforts to strengthen trade unions. This case mainly concerns the repair department of Samsung.
It is not clear which employee is involved, except that the person holds a senior position. Only the surname Choi has been made known because the researchers fear that other evidence will be erased. A Samsung spokesman did not want to respond to the investigation.
It is not the first time that someone with a top position within Samsung is arrested. Early 2017, an arrest warrant was issued against Vice President Jay Y. Lee. He was suspected of bribery, embezzlement and involvement in a corruption scandal.
Lee was found guilty in August. Then five years in prison was demanded from the Vice-President.
