SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- Special prosecutors raided the Samsung Group headquarters Tuesday in a widening probe into allegations that the massive conglomerate set up a slush fund to bribe influential figures.
Yim Jun-seok, a Samsung spokesman, confirmed that investigators entered the strategic planning office at the conglomerate's headquarters in Seoul. The official provided no details.
The raid came a day after investigators ransacked the office of Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-hee and seven other places.
The probe, which started last week, came after Kim Yong-chul, a former top legal affairs official at Samsung, alleged that the conglomerate set up a $215 million slush fund to bribe influential figures such as prosecutors, judges and government officials.
