Binance, a leading cryptocurrency exchange, is caught in legal turmoil as its executives face impending court trials in Nigeria. Accusations of money laundering and tax infractions have cast a shadow over the platform’s operations, leading to intensified scrutiny.

Binance Releases Defense Statement

Before the trial of two Binance executives, Tigran Gambaryan and Nadeem Anjarwalla, begins on April 4 in the Abuja Federal High Court of Nigeria, Binance has stated Tigran Gambaryan. 

The statement highlights Gambaryan’s background in law enforcement and his role in the company. Binance has focused that Gambaryan’s main role is overseeing compliance matters at Binance, but he holds no position of power and decision-making. 

After that, in the statement released, Binance emphasized that Gambaryan should not be held personally responsible for several high financial crime charges ranging from money laundering to tax infractions pressed against him. 

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) have filed separate charges against the executives. The EFCC alleges that Gambaryan and Anjarwalla laundered approximately $35.4 million, while the FIRS accuses them of tax evasion.

Binance is currently undergoing discussions with Nigerian government officials regarding the matter. 

However, the second executive, Nadeem Anjarwalla, has escaped detention under undisclosed and rater odd circumstances. It might be because he is a dual national of the U.K. and Kenya. Will Anjarwalla be present in the trial tomorrow is yet to be seen.
