Background Information

Savannah Fortis May 12, 2023 marked a significant moment in the legal proceedings against Terra Luna founder Do Kwon. After being charged with document forgery under Montenegrin law, local authorities granted approval to the bail terms proposed by lawyers on behalf of Kwon.

Interpol Involvement

This is due to him being part of the Terra ecosystem’s collapse which caused a loss of 40 billion USD back in May 2022 that shocked the crypto industry. The current criminal trial is scheduled to start on June 16th this year. As part of this trial, South Korean authorities have already frozen 176 million USD worth of assets belonging to Do Kwon personal accounts.
