Yahoo may rethink use of cash from Alibaba deal
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug 9 Yahoo Inc may re-evaluate plans for the cash it gets from a multibillion-dollar sale of half of its 40 percent stake in Chinese Internet company Alibaba Group.
SEOUL Feb 14 South Korea's Samsung Group said on Tuesday it never paid bribes to South Korean President Park Geun-hye or sought illicit favours from her, as a special prosecutor's office seeks to arrest the conglomerate's leader.
The prosecutor's office said earlier on Tuesday it filed a second request to arrest Jay Y. Lee, the third-generation leader of the country's top conglomerate, on charges including bribery, as part of a wider investigation into a graft scandal that led to Park's impeachment by parliament in December.
The prosecution accuses Lee of paying bribes to Park's confidant, Choi Soon-sil, to win support for a 2015 merger of two Samsung affiliates.
