SEOUL - South Korean special prosecutors investigating the scandal embroiling President Park Geun-hye planned Tuesday to indict Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong on bribery charge.

Lee Kyu-chul, spokesman of the independent counsel team, told the last press briefing that Lee and four senior Samsung executives will be indicted later in the day for multiple charges, including bribery.

Investigation by the special prosecutors is scheduled to end Tuesday as Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn rejected the request for an extended probe into the corruption scandal that led to President Park's impeachment.

The spokesman said the overall investigation results will be formally announced on March 6.
