Samsung's legal woes have reached a new plateau as the Korean police are looking into allegations that the company's chairman, Lee Kun-hee, embezzled funds.

"The South Korean police raided the head office of Samsung’s construction arm on Wednesday as they investigated whether Lee Kun-hee, the group’s patriarch, had misappropriated company funds to renovate his family’s home. Investigators will soon begin questioning others, including company officials, an officer involved with the investigation said."
