South Korea's Supreme Court on Thursday sentenced the former President Lee Myung-bak to a 17-year prison term in an appeals trial on charges of bribery and embezzlement in connection with his brother's auto parts company DAS.

In February, the Appeals Tribunal imprisoned Lee, who served as the country's head of state from early 2008 to 2013, to 17 years in prison with a fine of 13 billion won ($10.9 million) and a forfeit of 5.7 billion won.

The former president will be imprisoned upon the highest court's ruling, eight months after he filed an injunction in February against the appeals court's decision to reject his bail request.

Lee was charged in April 2018 with 16 counts of criminal allegations and embezzlement.

Throughout his political career, Lee was dogged by suspicions over whether he is the real owner of DAS, which the 78-year-old has flatly denied.
