Regarding Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong's suspicion of illegal administration of Propofol, the Prosecutors' Investigation Citizen Committee, which was held privately, decided'recommendation to stop the investigation' with an 8-6 majority opinion after a four-hour meeting and voting.

As for the prosecution of Vice Chairman Lee, the same number was recorded at 7-7.

The Investigation Deliberation Committee, consisting of outside experts such as civic groups, will soon deliver the decision to the investigation team. However, the resolution of the deliberation committee is not compulsory, so the prosecution is not obligated to follow the resolution as it is.
