Handcuffed and tied with white rope, the scion of one of the world’s biggest conglomerates, Samsung Group, was taken on Saturday for questioning by South Korean authorities after spending a night in a small detention cell.

Samsung Group chief Jay Y. Lee was arrested on Friday for his alleged role in a corruption scandal that has led to the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye.

The 48-year-old Lee, who has a net worth of $6.2 billion, heads the technology giant that is the world’s biggest manufacturer of smartphones, flat-screen televisions and memory chips.

Lee arrived at the special prosecutor’s office at about 2:20 pm (0520 GMT) clean-shaven and expressionless. He was wearing a dark suit, white shirt and no tie as he was escorted by officials from a justice ministry van.

The special prosecutor’s office accuses Lee of bribing a close friend of the president to gain government favors related to leadership succession at the conglomerate. It said on Friday it will indict him on charges including bribery, embezzlement, hiding assets overseas and perjury.

Samsung Group chief, Jay Y. Lee arrives at the office of the independent counsel team in Seoul, South Korea, February 18, 2017.

He spent the night at the Seoul Detention Centre on the outskirts of the capital in a small single cell with a toilet in the corner behind a partition.

Special prosecution spokesman Lee Kyu-chul said on Friday that officials were working to supplement inadequacies in their investigation into Lee, without elaborating.

NEW YORK: The chief executive of Uber Technologies Inc has ordered an “urgent investigation” into claims of sexual harassment raised by a former engineer in a blog post.

Susan Fowler, who left Uber in December, wrote that she was subjected to sexual advances through a ‘string of messages’ over the company’s chat software from the beginning of her employment.

“What she describes is abhorrent and against everything Uber stands for and believes in,” CEO Travis Kalanick said on the Twitter microblog on Sunday in response to the Fowler’s post. He said he had instructed Chief Human Resources Officer Liane Hornsey to conduct an urgent investigation.

Fowler wrote that Human Resources told her the person “was a high performer” and that management would not be comfortable in “giving him anything other than a warning”.

Arianna Huffington, editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, said in a tweet that as a representative of Uber’s board of directors, she would work with Hornsey in the investigation.

The San Francisco-based company was not immediately available for comment

Emergency visit to mechanic workshop

It was last week I visited a mechanic workshop,  what I saw there was something beyond my imagination. As the automobile engineers were working on the car I got carried away with the activities there.  There happens to be different segment in the workshop, there were many mechanic engineers, many apprentice.  The segments include welding ssegmen ,  tailoring segment, automobile painting segment and many more. Being that the visitation was impromptu I was actually unable to visit all the department  at the  workshop.  Embedded in the clip bellow is a little glimpse of my timeout in the workshop

The little moment I spent at the workshop I was filled with awe as I saw  young teens who were learning some skills there with different department. The  zeel I saw in workers there intrigued me and that prompted to clip a little moment of my encounter for you to see things for yourself. Not until last week it occurred to me how car seats are sewn, from the clip Mr. Frank made me understand that he has been surviving and sustaining his family with the business. A a peep at automobile painting segment made to start seeing every car that pass by entirely from a different perspective, after seeing this clip ask yourself if your car needs an emergency visit to a mechanic workshop #remembernottomakeyourvisitasemergencyasmine# Lol
