Former head of Mt.Gox found guilty of falsifying documents

Carpeles guilty

Initially, the prosecutor's office demanded 10 years of imprisonment from the court, but the verdict was decided to be whipped because Karpeles decided to cooperate with the investigation. He was later found not guilty of violating corporate rights and embezzling funds. The only suspicion that received the evidence base was the forgery of documents.

“I am glad that I have been found not guilty of what I did not commit. For everything else, I am ready to incur legal punishment, ”said Karpeles at the end of the hearing and the adoption of the sentence in his case. At the same time, lawyers for a crypto-currency millionaire called for an appeal and more detailed evidence of the evidence.

In the US, the case of embezzlement on the Mt.Gox exchange continues. Earlier, the Illinois court rejected a petition for its termination. American investors demanded not only to return the lost funds, but also to place all responsibility for what happened on Karpeles. The businessman himself has not yet commented on these charges.

Earlier it was reported that 70% of cryptocurrency owners practically do not use them for payments.
