The heir to the Samsung Empire has apologized for company misconduct including a controversial plan for him to ascend to the leadership of the world’s largest smartphone maker.
Lee Jae-Yong, the vice-chairman of Samsung Electronics and was jailed for five years in 2017 for bribery, embezzlement, and other offenses connected with the scandal that brought down South Korean president Park Geun-Hye.
The 51-year-old was released a year later on appeal but is currently undergoing a retrial.
Lee has now apologized because the public eye towards Samsung is still critical, all because of the shortcomings.
He promised never to take any actions that go against the law.
