South Korea’s special prosecutor’s office said on Wednesday it had expanded charges against Samsung Group chief Jay Y. Lee to include hiding the proceeds of a criminal act before it decided to seek a warrant for his arrest.

A Seoul court said on Tuesday it would hold a hearing on Thursday to decide on the prosecution’s request for warrants to arrest Jay Y. Lee and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (005930.KS) President Park Sang-jin for bribery and other charges.

Lee and the Samsung Group [SAGR.UL] have denied any wrongdoing.
