(Bloomberg) -- Some light has been shed on crypto fugitive Do Kwon’s travel after South Korea sought his arrest and his location became a mystery.
Prosecutors in Seoul said in a text message late Thursday that a report Kwon had left Singapore and flown to Dubai likely as a stopover to destinations unknown “was not false.”
Kwon’s Terraform Labs crypto project suffered a $60 billion implosion in May, convulsing the digital-asset sector and saddling investors with losses. He faces charges in South Korea, including accusations of breaching capital-markets law.
Kwon, who has denied wrongdoing, refrained from revealing his whereabouts in a podcast earlier this week, citing threats he’s received.
His location became unclear in September after officials said he was no longer in Singapore, where his project had a base. South Korea says Kwon is the subject of an Interpol red notice.
A Terraform Labs spokesperson declined to comment on his movements. Kwon didn’t reply to a request for comment.
