On Friday, Samsung Group chief Jay Y. Lee was arrested early over his suspected role in a corruption scandal. This dealt a new blow to the world's largest maker of smartphones and memory chips. Lee is a suspect in the influence-peddling scandal that led parliament to impeach President Park Geun-hye in December. This decision - if upheld by the Constitutional Court - would make her the country's first democratically elected leader forced out of office. Lee was taken into custody at the Seoul Detention Centre after waiting overnight for the decision. One jail official said He was being held in a single cell with a TV and desk.
