South Korea prosecutors seek 10-year jail term for Lotte chairman


SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean prosecutors are seeking a 10-year jail term for Lotte Group Chairman Shin Dong-bin after bringing corruption charges against him last year, a Lotte spokeswoman said.

Shin was charged with embezzlement and breach of trust in October 2016 after a high-profile prosecution probe into South Korea's fifth-largest conglomerate.

A prosecution spokesman declined comment.
