PostSubject: First Term Test 3 AS (Embezzlement)   Wed Nov 28, 2012 10:01 pm

The chairman of Hyundai Motors, one of South Korea's largest companies, has been sentenced to three years’ imprisonment on corruption charges. Chung Mong-Koo was accused of taking about a hundred million dollars from companies associated with Hyundai. The trial has been closely watched in South Korea, where it has been seen as a test of the court's commitment to tackle corporate corruption. The judge imposed a three-year jail term. He said, “A stiff sentence was necessary to change past business practices and to help South Korea develop into an advanced economy”. But the sentence was still three years short of the six demanded by the prosecution because the judge had taken into account Mr Chung's contributions to the national economy. In the past, the courts have treated similar cases with great leniency but there’s been growing pressure from the government and the public to impose tougher penalties.

Chung Mong-Koo was accused of amassing multi-million dollar slush funds to payoff politicians and government officials. The money was also used to smooth the way for his son to take control of the group. Hyundai Motors is one of South Korea's largest and most successful companies. A spokesman expressed disappointment at the sentence. He said, “The company appealed for leniency; it couldn't manage without the presence of its chairman”.
