CZ of Binance Could Skip Bail and Sentencing in UAE DOJ Argues in Appealing His Bond

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

FEDERAL COURT, Nov 22 – After Changpeng Zhao or CZ of Binance pled guilty to money laundering and sanctions violations, a Federal Magistrate ruled that he could travel back to the United Arab Emirates until his sentencing in February 2024.  

The US Attorney's Office said it would appeal to the assigned District Judge, and on November 22 it did. It notes that

"the United States has no extradition treaty with the UAE. If Zhao decided he would not return for his sentencing, the government would not be able to secure his return..  Zhao is a multi-billionaire. The government believes that the vast majority of that wealth is held overseas and Zhao is believed to have hundreds of millions of dollars in accessible cryptocurrency. Zhao could live on that wealth in the UAE indefinitely." Full memo on Patreon here.

Two people, undisclosed for now, have agreed to forfeit property if CZ were to not return. We'll have more on this.
