Samsung Group’s new compliance committee will operate independently from the management to better monitor whether the South Korean top conglomerate complies with its own internal structure and related regulations, the committee’s chief has said.

“The compliance monitoring committee will be independently operated and be totally free from Samsung’s intervention as independence and autonomy are crucial,” former Supreme Court Justice Kim Ji-hyung told reporters in Seoul.

The new committee comes as part of Samsung’s efforts to recover its reputation tarnished by a series of scandals involving its top executives, including the group’s de facto heir Lee Jae-yong, Yonhap news agency has reported.

Kim said the committee will include six other outside advisers, including law professors and civic group leaders.

“The committee will even directly investigate lawbreaking acts,” Kim said, adding that the committee will also establish a system to receive tips on unlawful acts by top executives.

Kim, considered a liberal judge, previously served as the head of a mediation committee to settle a long-standing dispute between Samsung Electronics Co. and its workers over the working environment and work-related disorders, including leukemia.

Samsung’s latest move also comes after a judge presiding over Lee’s bribery case ordered the conglomerate’s apparent heir in October to come up with measures to prevent Samsung from committing wrongdoings.

Lee was indicted in 2017 for giving bribes to a longtime friend of former President Park Geun-hye as he sought backing in succeeding his father Lee Kun-hee and securing the throne of Samsung Group.
