They do things differently in....

Korea.


"President Lee Myung-bak yesterday decided to grant a special pardon to over 340,000 people on Aug. 15, Liberation Day...The amnesty list of 341,864 people to be pardoned or to be reinstated includes high-profile tycoons such as Hyundai Kia Automotive Group Chairman Chung Mong-koo, SK Energy Chairman Chey Tae-won, Hanwha Group Chairman Kim Seung-youn and Hyundai Motor Vice Chairman Kim Dong-jin".

And for why?

"The decision...came after the nation's top five economic groups sent a letter last week to the president. The letter said the pardon of 106 business figures is indispensable to bolstering the deteriorating morale in business circles".

I don't think the CBI ever campaigned for Ernest Saunders to be freed for the good of the economy....
