SummarySupreme Court had directed Samsung Group Chairman Lee Kun-hee to appear before a Ghaziabad court.

Describing Supreme Court's direction asking Samsung Group Chairman Lee Kun-hee to appear before a Ghaziabad court in a cheating case an "extreme step", Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma today said it would adversely impact investment and business climate.

"Samsung is one of the largest companies of Korea and it has huge presence and investments in India...it sends a very negative message and will definitely adversely impact the investment and business climate.
