In the midst of this, the trial on the case of Gukjeong Nongdan, Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong on the 26th, resumed after nine months.
Vice-Chairman Lee Jae-yong, who has to protect the slums, did not come to trial today.
The Special Prosecutor's Office suggested the evaluation items while considering whether the Compliance Committee, which Samsung made by itself, is working properly, and that seems to be a variable in the trial.
For more details, reporter Won Jong-jin will deliver.
first trial held after the Supreme Court dismissed a request for evasion from the special prosecutors' office, claiming that the court proceeds in favor of Samsung.
Today's issue was the evaluation process for the'Samsung Compliance Committee', which was created as a proposal by the court.
From the standpoint of Vice-Chairman Lee, who is in danger of being sentenced to imprisonment as a bribe of over 5 billion won was recognized in the Supreme Court, he can expect probation of execution only when the activities of the Compliance Committee receive good evaluation.
The special prosecutor was initially opposed to the Compliance Committee, but changed its position.
It was decided to recommend the special prosecutors' personnel to the'Professional Psychological Committee' that evaluates the'Compliance Monitoring Committee'.
At the same time, they put the condition that five items must be properly evaluated.
First, after dismantling the Future Strategy Office, he asked to see if the Business Support Task Force has committed any illegal activities such as the investigation of Samsung Biologics.
In addition, Vice Chairman Lee was asked to clarify whether he admits illegality committed during the succession process, and what plans to sell Samsung Electronics' shares owned by Samsung Life Insurance in connection with the proposed amendment to the Insurance Business Act.
In addition, they asked us to check how the compliance committee budget was managed, and how Samsung spent enormous attorneys' fees.
Samsung's lawyers expressed a negative opinion on these proposals, saying they are concerned about a delay in the trial.
Regarding the trial schedule, the special prosecutor decided to discuss the schedule again on the 9th of the following month as the special prosecutor objected to the date of the final pleadings presented by the court.
