Samsung Electronics CEOs tell employees to follow the lawThe three joint CEOs of Samsung Electronics emphasized the importance of following the law in an email sent to employees on Wednesday.
In the statement, the trio of CEOs — Kim Ki-nam, in charge of the semiconductor division, Kim Hyun-suk, in charge of consumer electronics, and Koh Dong-jin, in charge of mobile devices — said that a commitment to complying with rules and regulations should form the basis of all workers’ mindsets.
The leaders also called for the need to address a multitude of challenges including a trade dispute between the United States and China as well as the coronavirus pandemic.
The encouragement came at a critical time, as the company's Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong undergoes a trial in connection with a bribery scandal involving Former President Park Geun-hye.
The tech giant established a court-ordered internal compliance monitoring committee to ensure that all employees follow the law.
