Samsung Group leader Lee appears for hearing on arrest warrant

SEOUL, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Samsung Group chief Jay Y. Lee appeared at the special prosecutor’s office on Thursday on his way to a court hearing, before a judge decides whether to issue an arrest warrant over his alleged role in a corruption scandal that has engulfed President Park Geun-hye.

Lee did not answer reporters’ questions as he made his way into an elevator at the office.

The hearing will take place at the Seoul Central District Court from 10:30 a.m. (0130 GMT). (Reporting by Joyce Lee and Hyunjoo Jin; Editing by Richard Pullin)
