CEOs of Binance are being stalked after being accused of tax evasion

At the Federal High Court in Abuja, the arraignment of Binance Holdings Limited and one of its senior executives, Tigray Gambaryan, has been postponed.

The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has not yet served the second defendant, Gambaryan, with the complaint, thus the arraignment could not proceed.

Tonye Krukrubo, his attorney, brought up during the day’s proceedings that his client, whom the Federal Government had scheduled for arraignment, was unaware of the charges against him.

Due to the second defendant’s incarceration, the FIRS’s attorney informed the court that serving him has become challenging. In order to serve the defendant in court, he begged the judge to give leave.

Although he did not oppose, the defendant’s attorney also questioned the Federal Government’s actions in delivering the accusation to the defendant. The defendant is to be served in court, per the court’s order.

In order to give the defendant time to review the charges and prepare a plea, the prosecution asked the court for an adjournment.

Judge Emeka Nwite then postponed the arraignment in the FIRS action until April 19.

The anti-graft agency filed five accusations in the second lawsuit brought by the EFCC, all of which had to do with corruption and money laundering.
