The Case of Virgil Griffith is Gaining Momentum: Another Accomplice is Revealed
Former Ethereum Foundation researcher Virgil Griffith is accused of violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA). According to the case file, he did not work alone, law enforcement agencies are now trying to arrest his accomplice, whose name is kept in secret. For those who are not up to date, the IEEPA was created to regulate trade relations with those states that pose a potential threat to the national security of the United States of America. Recall that Griffith was arrested at the end of November last year, accused of helping the DPRK authorities bypass US sanctions and launder money. The district court allowed a former employee of the Ethereum Foundation to bail the US $1 million before the New Year, but he did not pay and is still in custody. Representatives of the EF organization express their support for their former colleague.
