Seoul: Samsung Electronics on Friday made a formal apology to all victims of work-related diseases who were employed at the company’s chip and display production lines, settling the long-standing dispute that lasted for more than a decade. Samsung Electronics President and CEO Kim Ki-Nam, who heads the tech giant’s crucial device solution division, expressed deep regrets on behalf of the company to the victims, claiming that Samsung will make every effort to comply with the compensation plan prepared by the mediation committee. “Beloved colleagues and families have suffered for a long time, but Samsung Electronics failed to take care of the matter earlier,” Kim said. “We lacked being considerate of such pains and promptly settled the issue. “Samsung Electronics also did not fully and completely manage potential health risks at our chip and liquid-crystal display production lines. Today, we wish to express a sincere apology to the workers who suffered from diseases, as well as their families,” Kim added. (IANS)
