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 Jonathan Toews 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, 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, 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, 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," 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, 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, Samsung Electronics appointed a new generation of top managers at its three main businesses, including semiconductors, in October.


Former President Park, who denies wrongdoing, 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.

NEW DELHI, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- At least 35 people have been killed after a passenger bus crashed through an old bridge and plunged into a deep canal connected to a river in the eastern Indian state of West Bengal Monday, police said.


The accident occurred at Daulatabad in Murshidabad district, some 220 km from the state capital Kolkata.


"The bus, carrying some 50 people, broke through the railing of the bridge and fell into the canal connected to Jalangi river after its driver lost control of the speeding vehicle while swerving to avoid another vehicle," a senior police official said.


So far, 35 bodies, including those of women and children, have been fished out of waters, including those who got trapped inside the bus, while some injured passengers were admitted to a nearby government hospital, the official said. "Some six people swam to safety," he added.


The bus was going to Malda district from Karimpur in Nadia district via Murshidabad when the accident occurred.


Local TV channels showed dramatic footage of the bus being lifted from the canal bed with the help of three hydraulic cranes under the supervision of the National Disaster Management Force personnel, who brought out bodies one after another from inside the bus.


Earlier in the day, local police had to charge batons and lobby tear gas shells to control a huge crowd that had gathered around the accident scene and attacked cops with stones alleging that they arrived late. They even set two police vehicles afire.


"Some of the survivors told us that the driver was driving at high speed while talking on mobile phone on the bridge. A probe has been ordered into the incident," the official said.


State Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee visited the accident spot. She has condoled the deaths and announced a compensation for the kin of those who had died in the accident.


This is the third bus accident in the state in the past two weeks. On Jan. 17, eight people were killed when a bus fell into a canal near Kharagpur in West Midnapore district. And nine people died when another bus fell into a ditch in Murshidabad district three days later.


India has one of the highest road fatalities in the world. Road accidents occur mostly due to poor driving or badly maintained roads and vehicles.

Surfing is a physical activity and classrooms are for bookworms. But spend some time getting a few clues. That will prevent you from being sorry you chose to surf.
