“The headquarters of Samsung Electronics – the Samsung Group’s cash cow – was raided by prosecutors yesterday as the political crisis that has gripped South Korea ensnared the country’s biggest conglomerate as well,” SamMobile reports. “Samsung’s HQ in the upscale Gangnam area of Seoul was searched by prosecutors after days of allegations in local media that the Samsung had poured in millions of euro into a foundation run by a ‘shaman adviser’ and long-time friend of President Park Geun-hye.”

“This political scandal started when it became evident that Choi Soon-sil, a long-term personal friend of the president who holds no government position had actually been influencing presidential decisions,” SamMobile reports. “Ms. Park has received a lot of criticism for this and the public has been protesting daily as allegations of selling influence and corruption threaten to bring down the presidency.”

“Ms. Choi is now in detention. It’s claimed that she used her position of confidence with Ms. Park to put pressure on major conglomerates like Samsung, SK group and Lotte to download millions of euro to foundations controlled by her,” SamMobile reports. “The police are now looking into claims made by local media last week that Samsung had transferred 2.8 million euro to Widec Sports in Germany which is controlled by Ms. Choi.”
