Former Korean President Lee Myung Bak has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for corruption and other offenses.
The district court in Seoul also imposed on the 76-year-old a fine in the millions, as the South Korean broadcaster KBS reported on Friday.
The prosecution had demanded 20 years in prison. The conservative politician had rejected the allegations. Lee was accused, among other things, of having taken bribes from the secret service, entrepreneurs and other organizations as president from 2008 to 2013.
