The collapse of the algorithmic stablecoin Terra and its native token LUNA remained a shocking event in the crypto space. The outcome was the loss of billions of dollars for many individual and institutional investors. It also threw the entire crypto industry into a historic crisis. Lots of changes have taken place following the fall of the stablecoin.
Subsequently, some investigations and legal cases have been against the founder of Terraform Labs, Do Kwon. Firstly, the South Korean Prosecutors leveled some allegations against the Terra Chief.
Also, the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) issued a Red Notice against him. The Interpol request is for law enforcement’s immediate arrest of Do Kwon globally.
There was a massive loss of over $60 billion of investors’ funds through the fall of Terra and its ecosystem in the first half of the year. The South Korean Prosecutors requested the assistance of Interpol for the arrest of Kwon.
The prosecutors accused the Terra chief of hiding to avoid their investigations. According to a source, Kwon was seen in Singapore, though the city police noted that he later left.
Terra Says Case Against Kwon Is Highly Hyped Up
Following the alert from Interpol, there was a slight fall in the prices of Terra Classic (LUNC) and the newly launched Terra LUNA. Some rumors have been that Kwon went into hiding since the collapse of Terra and its ecosystem.
Terraform Labs has finally reacted to the case against Do Kwon. The firm stated that the case is highly politicized while speaking to Bloomberg. The spokesperson mentioned that the South Korean Prosecutors’ steps depicted unfairness in all aspects.
According to the spokesperson, the prosecutors failed to adhere to the basic rights available under Korean Law. Also, he noted that the prosecutors’ allegations against Kwon of breach of capital market laws indicated reasonable bias.
