Samsung Heir, Jay Y. Lee to be Released From Jail on Parole 

Samsung heir, Jay .Y. Lee, who served a two and half year sentence for bribery charges will be released from prison on Friday this week after being granted a parole after his case was reviewed.

Lee was Samsung’s vice chairman and had acted as the company’s de facto head since his father, Lee Kun-Hee, suffered a heart attack in 2014.
