|A South Korean appeals court will rule on Monday on Samsung Group scion Jay Y. Lee's conviction and jail term for corruption in a case that led to the ouster of the nation's president last year.
Seoul High Court is due to decide the fate of the 49-year-old Samsung Electronics vice chairman Cheap Neftali Feliz Jersey , who has been detained for a year on charges arising from a scandal that shone a light on cozy ties between family-run conglomerates and political powers, as well as bringing down President Park Geun-hye.
It is a scandal South Korea would like to put behind it days before it hosts the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
A lower court in August convicted Lee and jailed him for five years for bribing Park for help in strengthening his control of Samsung Electronics, the crown jewel of the country's largest conglomerate and one of the world's biggest technology companies, as well as embezzlement and other charges.
The court said Samsung's financial support for entities backed by a friend of Park's Cheap Jon Niese Jersey , Choi Soon-sil, constituted bribery, including 7.2 billion won ($6.4 million) to sponsor the equestrian career of Choi's daughter.
In return for the contributions, prosecutors say Cheap Matt Joyce Jersey , Samsung sought government support for a controversial 2015 merger of two of its affiliates, which helped Lee tighten his control of the conglomerate. Lee's lawyers had argued that the merger was carried out on merit but the lower court did not accept that.
If the appeals court sentences Lee to a jail term longer than three years, his detention will continue as he awaits a final appeal to the Supreme Court, legal experts said.
The appeals court could decide on a jail term of less than three years Cheap Sean Rodriguez Jersey , or it could award a suspended sentence, which would mean Lee could go free for the first time since he was detained last February.
The court could also overrule the conviction and declare Lee innocent on all charges, but the legal experts see the chances of that happening as slim.
"If nothing else, Samsung money was used to sponsor the equestrian career Cheap Brandon Cumpton Jersey ," said Son Soo-ho, a lawyer.
Whatever the decision, the case is expected to go to the Supreme Court, as prosecutors in December called for a 12-year jail term after Lee appealed.
The third-generation de facto head of the Samsung Group Cheap Tony Watson Jersey , Lee has effectively directed large-scale operations at Samsung Electronics since his father, Lee Kun-hee, was incapacitated by a heart attack in 2014, such as the $8 billion acquisition of auto electronics maker Harman in early 2017.
Faced with investor worries about a leadership vacuum with Lee in detention Cheap Drew Hutchison Jersey , Samsung Electronics appointed a new generation of top managers at its three main businesses, including semiconductors, in October.
Former President Park, who denies wrongdoing Cheap Francisco Cervelli Jersey , is standing trial accused of bribery, abuse of power and coercion, having been forced to step down in March after parliament voted to impeach her at the end of 2016.
She has been held in detention since March.
RIO DE JANEIRO， May 12 (Xinhua) -- The Brazilian Senate Thursday voted to continue the impeachment process against President Dilma Rousseff， suspending her from office for 180 days.
The Senate gave the go-ahead to the impeachment trial by 55-22 in the early hours of Thursday after over 20 hours of heated discussion， with each lawmaker claiming to have acted in the public interest and have the law on his or her side.
Unlike in the lower-house voting， which took place in April， Brazilian Attorney General Jose Eduardo Cardozo， who is defending the president， had the chance to speak before the vote.
Senator Angela Portela from the ruling Workers' Party also said that the opposition has ""an uncontrollable desire to subvert the result of the election，"" stressing that the impeachment was not logical as it was based on alleged mistakes made in last year's accounts， which have yet to be appraised by the Accounts Court.
She also warned about the social impact， saying ""we will be removing a victorious government proposal and a generous project to redesign our society， a project which foresees inclusion， protection of minorities， reduction of inequalities and economic growth with justice.""
Another Workers' Party Senator， Joao Viana， said that ""it is not fair to do what they (the opposition) are doing to the Brazilian democracy. They are not taking down President Dilma， they are taking down popular vote.""
For its part， the opposition insisted on its stance. Senator Magno Malta from the Party of the Republic compared the impeachment to a surgical operation.
""Brazil today is like a diabetic， feverish body， with a leg infected with gangrene， ready to be amputated，"" he said， adding ""if we amputate the leg， we save the body; by not amputating the leg， we compromise the entire body.""
The immediate consequence of Thursday's voting is that Rousseff will be removed from office temporarily until the Senate submits the case to a final trial， which will happen in up to 180 days. Vice President Michel Temer will take over in the period.
Considering the fact that the opposition managed to get two-thirds in the first voting， more than the votes needed to impeach the president in the final trial， the government's chance is slim.
However， analysts said that although an overturn to the impeachment prospect is quite unlikely at this point， it is not impossible， since Brazilian politicians are notoriously fickle and some may change their minds when faced with public opposition.
Temer， whose Brazilian Democratic Movement Party recently left the ruling coalition， is seen as spearheading the movement to impeach Rousseff. Media reported that he has an entirely new Cabinet prepared and intends to make significant changes， shifting the direction of the administration.
