    South Korea pardons Samsung boss 'to help the economy'

    https://www.france24.com/en/live-new...lp-the-economy

    The heir and de facto leader of Samsung group received a presidential pardon Friday, the latest example of South Korea's long tradition of freeing business leaders convicted of corruption on economic grounds.

    Billionaire Lee Jae-yong, who was convicted of bribery and embezzlement in January last year, will be "reinstated" to give him a chance to "contribute to overcoming the economic crisis" of the country, Justice Minister Han Dong-hoon said.

    Lee -- the 278th-richest person in the world, according to Forbes, with a net worth of $7.9 billion -- was released on parole in August 2021, after serving 18 months in jail, just over half of his original sentence.

    Friday's pardon will allow him to fully return to work by lifting a post-prison employment restriction that had been set for five years.

    "Due to the global economic crisis, the dynamism and vitality of the national economy have deteriorated, and the economic slump is feared to be prolonged," the Justice Ministry said in a statement.

    Its just Nol Pros most other places. Like they do in the US. Legalize the behavior in congress first then let the corporations run wild. Then the market soars and the politicos get richer. Think of any US financial crisis the last 40 years. Junk Bonds, Credit Default Swaps, Savings and Loans. Very few do time usually one or two and the rest go free and prosper. After 08 they should have locked up a hundred CEOs but they didn't they just passed the Dodd-Frank act to basically codify in a safer way what caused the great recession. I mean wtf it only cost the taxpayers a few trillion.
