According to the latest reports, it seems that the Bahamas Supreme Court has just allowed the FTX founder to contest the charges. Check out the latest reports about this below.

News on FTX founder is out

The Bahamas Supreme Court stated just recently the fact that Sam Bankman-Fried has the right to be heard before the island nation consents to some of the charges that US authorities filed against the disgraced FTX founder.

Bankman-Fried is now facing charges that are not covered in the original indictment that served as the basis for his extradition.

According to court documents, “Bankman-Fried is claiming that he has the right to contest the charges that were not present during his extradition before the Bahamas can consent to his prosecution on additional offenses.”

The latest reports coming from the online publication the Daily Hodl notes the fact that a new ruling, Bahamas Supreme Court Judge Loren Klein decided in favor of Bankman-Fried’s bid to contest the charges.

“Leave is granted to the claimant to commence proceedings for judicial review.”

According to Klein, it is important to uphold Bankman-Fried’s right to due process, even in light of the potential for increased penalties and a longer period of imprisonment if he is convicted of the additional charges.

“If the claimant is right in the contention that he has a right to be heard, any decision to grant consent without allowing him to make representations would deprive him of the procedural guarantees under the combination of the Treaty and the Act relating to the making of such a decision.”

A few days ago, we were revealing the fact that FTX’s clients’ names remain shielded.

FTX clients’ names can remain shielded

According to the latest reports, it seems that the collapsed exchange FTX’s customer list can remain permanently sealed. This is according to what a judge ruled on June 9, after a debate over how the list can return value to investors.

As the online publication The Block notes, the Delaware Judge John Dorsey ruled that the list counts as a trade secret, according to the Associated Press, and keeping the list secret will help protect creditors from harm.
