The chairman of South Korea's Samsung Group has been summoned to appear before special prosecutors investigating possible corruption.
A spokesman for the conglomerate says Lee Kun-hee will make his appearance on Friday. It will be the first time the reclusive 66-year-old tycoon will face questioning over allegations Samsung created a special slush fund to bribe government officials.
Lee's wife, Hong Ra-hee, was questioned on Wednesday over allegations she used some of the money in the fund to purchase expensive artwork. His son has also been summoned by the investigators.
The probe began in January after South Korea's parliament passed a measure based on allegations raised by Samsung's former chief attorney. The mandate of the investigation will expire later this month.
