SEOUL 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).
