S.Korean court denies arrest warrant request for Samsung heir Jay Y. Lee

SEOUL, June 9 (Reuters) - A South Korean court on Tuesday denied an arrest warrant request for Samsung Group heir Jay Y. Lee after prosecutors accused him of accounting fraud and stock manipulation, the court spokesperson said in a statement.

Prosecutors on Thursday asked the court to issue an arrest warrant against Lee, culminating their probe into the controversial merger of two Samsung affiliates that they said facilitated Lee taking greater control over the group. (Reporting by Heekyong Yang and Hyunjoo Jin; Editing by Chris Reese)
