UIWANG, SOUTH KOREA (REUTERS) – Samsung Electronics Vice-Chairman Jay Y. Lee, convicted of bribery and embezzlement, was released on parole on Friday (Aug 13).
Lee appeared outside the Seoul Detention Centre, wearing a dark grey suit and looking thinner than when he was last detained in January.
“I’ve caused much concern for the people. I deeply apologise,” Lee told reporters. “I am listening to the concerns, criticisms, worries and high expectations for me. I will work hard.”
