    Imprisoned ex-President Lee Myung-bak was admitted to Seoul National University Hospital on Monday for check-ups for chronic illnesses, according to the Justice Ministry.

    The ministry did not specify what the illnesses are citing security reasons.

    Lee (81), who serves a 17-year sentence for corruption and embezzlement at a prison in Anyang, Gyeonggi Province, was taken to hospital three times last year for diabetes and bronchitis.
