Former health minister receives 2.5 years in jail

Nov 15,2017
An appeal court upheld the sentence of two-and-a-half years on Tuesday for a former health and welfare minister in connection with a corruption scandal involving ousted President Park Geun-hye.

The Seoul High Court delivered the sentence to the 61-year-old Moon Hyung-pyo, who is accused of pressuring the National Pension Service (NPS) to approve a controversial merger of two Samsung units deemed vital for a smooth leadership transfer to the group’s heir Lee Jae-yong.

The court also retained the lower court’s two-and-a-half year sentence on Hong Wan-sun, then-head of the NPS asset management division, on charges of dereliction of duty. He is accused of inflicting losses on the pension fund by ordering the merger’s approval.
