Samsung family in inheritance dispute
The sister of the chairman of Samsung is suing her brother for a share of the inheritance left by their father, reports the BBC.
Their father, the founder of Samsung, died in 1987. Lee Sook-hee is seeking the return of shares worth around £107 million from her brother, the current chairman of the South Korean firm. A similar law suit, worth £396 million, has already been lodged against the chairman by another of his brothers.
According to the BBC, court papers claim that "the stocks... were assets put in a trust under the name of non-heirs, and they should have been apportioned to the heirs according to law."
The siblings allege, however, that their brother, Lee Kun-hee, has kept the shares for himself.
